So we should boot out every government that becomes unpopular on the whim of a drunk? Howard would've been screwed about six months into his first term.

You don't see a problem with a foreigner dismissing our government? You can't see a time when that foreigner might have a conflict of interest?

it was a true proletariat decision

Is it true that whole event was started by some pinko MP not being able to resist something else pink and stinky?

Probably Gough's biggest mistake. Probably just behind the steak lunch when he should've been recalling the budget from the Senate

That is utter bulltwang Mick.

A foreigner did not dismiss the Australian government. The Queen has no power to dismiss an Australian government. The Governor-General is the only person who can do that.

The Statute of Westminster ensures that the Governor-General is appointed and dismissed on the advice of the Australian Prime Minister. The Queen has the right to advise, warn and counsel on this decision, but she must ultimately accept the Prime Minister's advice.

How does a Whitlam appointed GG ignoring Whitlam's Executive Council have anything to with a foreigner dismissing our govt?

PMSL at the rabid pinkos still crying over the rightful axing of the appalling Whitlam Government. Best.Decision.Ever. And wholeheartedly (as mentioned by lardy) supported immediately after by the voting populus. Wonder how big the lump in horrie's, qmy's and Mick's throat was that day?? Laughing

ATT: The Queen

Dear Australian Head of State,

We would like to place ourselves at your mercy and request a stay of execution for our television program, The Chaserís Royal Wedding Commentary.

We, like Kate, are commoners, and were looking forward to celebrating her wedding to your exalted grandson with a few affectionate observations.

To ensure that our coverage was respectful, we were only planning to use jokes that Prince Phillip has previously made in public, or at least the ones that donít violate racial vilification laws. We've also filmed a joke about hunting grouse which we think you might enjoy.

We Australians are a simple people who donít often get to watch that kind of pomp. The last big wedding we had here was Scott and Charlene on Neighbours. Weíve asked around, and there are at least six people in this outpost of your empire who would quite like to watch our commentary.

Please consider our plea.

We have the honour to be, Madam, Your Majestyís humble and obedient servants,

Cheers,
The Chaser

Of course, the only Chaser that Liz has heard of is the Whisky Chaser that Phil the Greek knocks back each evening, or is that morning? Cool

I merely pointed out that the office actually has real powers. Though the dismissal probably did a better job of proving that.

I got back to this country just in time for the republic referendum and it was only in the last couple of days of that debate that Hawke pointed out that when Hayden wanted the job he (Hawke) and he alone made the decision. As he said he probably couldn't have sold it to cabinet let alone the parliament. So maybe it's better the current system stays the same. Just unlike Gough or "Kate" they choose more wisely.

Where's your spirit? (behind the bar qmy) I was actually in London (well living there) for his Mum's wedding and funeral. If I was there now I'd be leaving about now just to escape the rush.

I find the whole Royal caper tedious. And weddings are by definition tedious. So a Royal Wedding is tedious squared. Hope there's some footy on.
