The Royal Family (Brits Preferred). - July 31st 2017, 06:12 AM

The Australian Federal Opposition Leader, Bill Shorten, has promised that under the first term of a future Labor government, he will force a referendum on whether Australia should become a republic: whether we should separate from the British Royal Family. So I thought I would get the opinions of people who grew up in the heart of the Commonwealth, do you support the Royal Family, is it a big deal for you guys?

My concern is that whether it is right or wrong, royals are celebrities now, and the vote could depend on how cute Prince William and Duchess Katherine's children end up being, or what they think about Princess Diana. It is a massive risk. Referendums are expensive, and they need special conditions to be successful (a majority of people in a majority of states). I fail to see what the reward is for that, especially since the Royal Family no longer has any real governmental role in our society.

The last referendum Australia held failed: a vote on whether Australia should become a republic, championed in the positive by our current Prime Minister. It cost around $70,000,000USD.
