I am ever so happy and ever so proud to be Australian. We would not be cowed or blackmailed and we voted to keep the Liberals in office for another three years. Despite opinion polls showing a Labor victory up to the day of voting.

This is because Bill Shorten was a pompous and uninspiring leader who failed to resonate with voters, and his policies were terrible. And there's that elephant in the room: republicanism. Labor officially advocates for a republic and promised a plebiscite if they won. However, they didn't mention it much during the campaign and Shorten only brought it up in the final days.

What this means is that republicanism is clearly unpopular among Australian voters, including many Labor voters. The electorate just isn't interested in constitutional change, let alone a referendum which would waste time and money.

The reactions of the Left have been hilarious and downright unhinged. They don't hide that they hate this country and its people, much like those in the USA and UK.

I'm glad Australia can see what we Brits are currently going through, like seriously how can our government be both incompetent and be discriminatory against those who have different opinions to them.


Thanks by the way.

It's clear that republicans aren't taking their recent setbacks too well. I hope the issue quietly fades away like separatism in Quebec:

Are republicans in Australia admitting that they've lost the battle?

A new AML campaign site. Just because republicans are losing, doesn't mean we can sleep:
