No one word defines more what Australia stands for than Commonwealth – think about it, Common Wealth, shared prosperity, equal opportunity, a fair go. This has been our heritage and, god willing, it will be our future.
As we stand now, we are part of a family of nations who value friendship and fairness and that’s where we should stay. Any move to go it alone as a republic would be a backwards step. We have so many privileges as a Commonwealth country and so much that we can contribute back into this community.
