No politicians’ republic on his agenda

"Tony Abbott ran Australians for a Constitutional Monarchy for a while and he won't be changing his mind on that issue," writes Alexander Downer in News Limited newspapers and online outlets on 10 September, 2013.

"The republic, which doesn't have much public support these days anyway, will barely be discussed by the new government…. Indeed, Tony Abbott is a traditionalist who values are existing national symbols and institutions. Don't be surprised if he does what the New Zealand prime minister did three or four years ago…brings back knighthoods.''
