Cestmoi - more diversions
While China's anthem sings of blood, slaves, guns and defiance, Australia's mentions building a nation and sharing it's wealth with immigrants.|
Cestmoi's discomfort at the difference in the two can only be addressed with his diversionary tactic by attacking Australia, erroneously as usual.
<<She is represented in Australia by the Vice Regal Governor-General, who is appointed by her majesty.>>
HM's appointment of the GG is entirely on the advice of the elected Prime Minister. She cannot appoint a GG in defiance of the PM's wishes. The choice of GG is the prerogative of the Government or PM, not HM.
<< The prime minister of Australia serves at the pleasure of the Governor-General. Incur the displeasure of the Governor-General and the prime minister will be sacked.>>
Incure the displeasure of the PM and the GG can be sacked too! The GG can be removed at a moments notice by the PM if he so pleases. These checks and balances prevent abuse of powers by PM, GG or even HM !
<<Sir John Kerr sacked prime minister Gough Whitlam. It was Whitlam who officially abolished the "White Australia Policy". >>
It was Whitlam's party (the ALP) who introduced the White Australia Policy in the early 20th century. While this "policy " was introduced by Labour it existed in name only (it was ignored) under successive Liberal Governments of the 50's and 60's when non-white immigration to Australia grew.
<<Sir John was a "Liberal" party member. >>
Another LIE, from Cestmoi. Sir John Kerr was a member of the Australian Labour Party.
<<Kerr returned to the bar in 1948, becoming a prominent lawyer representing trade union clients and an active member of the Labor Party. He intended seeking Labor endorsement for a parliamentary seat at the 1951 elections, but withdrew in favour of another candidate. >>
<<In Australia, a "Liberal" is the equivalent of the American neo-conservative, most Australian "Liberals" are like Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush et. al. >>
Rubbish, about the only similarity is that the Liberal Party is (like the Republicans) the right of the two main political parties. Australian government regulation & social welfare policies are generally to the "left" of the US Democrats.
<<John Howard is of the view that Australia must not be a republic....>>
Yes, so do more than half of Australians at the last vote...
<<.....and must remain subservient to the "mother country".>>
More crap, evidence please, singing anthems does not constitute evidence.
So there we have it, Cestmoi is never one to let the facts stand in the way of a good bit of Aussie Bashing.
