Gold Coast Games provoking increased Head of State debate
"It is no surprise the Head of State debate in both Australia and NZ has increased with Charles and Camilla visiting the Games" said Savage, spokesman for NZ Republic.
"Both Kiwis and Australian's see the contradictions inherent in having a British Head of State. Especially when the majority of Commonwealth nations are republics with their own Head of State"
"Former Australian PM Paul Keating is right to call it out. Behind the scenes the Prince has made it clear he has no problem with either Australia or NZ choosing it's own constitutional leader".
"As we watch the Gold Coast Games it's natural we will discuss our connections with the UK and the other commonwealth nations but let's be really clear that becoming a republic is not about leaving the Commonwealth. It is about taking that last step to full constitutional independence" he concluded.
