THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH DECEMBER 22, 2013

HE restored an oath of allegiance to the Queen when he was sworn in as Prime Minister, but Tony Abbott has ruled out bringing back Knights and Dames in Australia.

But critics within the Liberal Party have savaged the idea of as an attempt to introduce a "bunyip aristocracy''.

In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, Mr Abbott said he did not support the idea, which would involve converting the Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) to Knighthoods or reintroducing a new regal honour.

What the hell are you on about, Aussie?

The GG is an appointed position for 5 years.


The current GG had her appointment extended 6 months.

Mister Ex-Policeman Aussie, you should read more about The Law and not continue to think you are above it.



he is not an ex anything.. hes a wannabee.. theres a difference...small but enough... aussie would know all about small..

the GG didnt have her tenure extended I think she was allowed to finish her term in a dignified manner which she deserved

Nobody in Australian Politics will ever get  a knighthood.  I think Whitlam stopped that and good on him.  The best they can get is an AO.  Grin

I just this moment caught Abbott introducing this to Australia ~ and I think it's a great idea.

Fabulous idea.

But then the Ch9 news anchor immediately asked for the opinion of a couple of luvvies ... who trashed and damned it as 'elitist' and "50's" and "puts 'Sirs' and 'Dames' on a higher platform than the rest of us".

"Oh, boo-hoo ... 's'not fair!" (stamps foot).

These Socialist swine HATE meritocracy for it being a product of competition, discrimination, aspirations beyond mediocrity, etc.

The Tall Poppies Syndrome is alive and well, and resentful as ever amongst the socialists.

My only reservation is that there are sure to be some knighthoods and Damehoods that I'll think are ridiculous.

The Brits ruined knighthoods by dishing them out like plastic medals from the bottom of Corn Flakes packet.

A lot of their Knights and Dames are just plain ridiculous ...'B'-grade actors, rock stars, sporting identities ...

I like the idea of research doctors getting a knighthood when they develop a vaccine etc that saves lives, etc.

Inventors, discoverers, etc ... but for GOD SAKE! let's not have any sports-people and 'Footy Heroes' given knighthoods.

What's the betting an Aboriginal person will be given a knighthood or made a Dame before the end of Abbott's time in office?

And a prominent lesbian and gay bum-banger will be anointed likewise to show how liberal and 'progressive' we are.

And they mustn't forget a Muslim, and a coloured immigrant ethnic of some sort.

And someone who looks Chinese.

'Australian of the Year' .... We've seen it all before.

Nah ~ Kings rule kingdoms, and emperors rule empires, but Abbot rules a country.
