Nah. I can quote one line: The Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act
1900 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom at Westminster. As
soon as I read that, I set about memorising it.
But I'm as republican as an under-eighteen-year-old can be. We should have
our own HoS. (Although I wasn't too fond of Keating's plan. The HoS should
*be* the Govenor General).
