If Australians had voted ‘Yes’ on 6 November, 1999 there would have been major taxpayer funded celebrations across Australia this week. Money would have been no obstacle. After all, it would have been your money – and certainly not theirs.
But since there was a landslide that day against the politicians’ republic, official Australia will try to let Affirmation Day pass unnoticed.
But it will be noticed.
An historic event is planned for this Thursday. In his first address on this issue, the former Prime Minister, The Hon. John Howard AC, addresses the nation in the Neville Bonner Oration to be delivered at the Tattersall’s Club Sydney. The title of the address is “The Crowned Republic”. The noted broadcaster Alan Jones will follow.
The event will be recorded on DVD and you can be there.
This DVD (together with some exclusive interviews) will be a reference for years. It will explain why the people refused the blandishments – and the threats – of our elites. It will show why they preferred to affirm the choice of their predecessors – that Australia be an indissoluble Federal Commonwealth under the Crown.
