Sydney Daily Telegraph columnist , Malcolm Farr,  says a republic is the next vital constitutional step.

I replied in this letter to the editor:

Sir,

So Malcolm Farr thinks a republic is our ‘next vital constitutional step’.

You have to solve two problems first, Malcolm.

Devise a republican model manifestly better than, or at least as good as the present one. (The taxpayer spent a fortune letting you test your last one.)

Then overcome the fact that nobody -apart from the elites –is the slightest bit interested.

Yours Sincerely

David Flint
