I have been emailed the following:
The Australian Monarchist League welcomes the news that “Senior Government figures admit the prospect of a backlash from voters in marginal seats -- many of whom are fearful of losing their jobs -- has forced a rethink.” (Herald-Sun January 30, 2009)
The League has always held that it would be a foolish and short-lived government that seeks to tamper with our Constitution. It was the votes of Traditional Labor, who are in the main staunch Monarchists, which kept John Howard in power, and it was they who deserted Howard in droves over WorkChoices. In a similar manner they will speedily abandon the Rudd government if it proceeds along the pathway of radical constitutional change.

"Traditional Labor" did for a time exert conisderable influence in Australia in the form of the pro-life, pro-family and pro-worker, if tragicaly also (at least in relation to Vietnam) pro-war, Democratic Labor Party of Bob Santamaria, one of the most influential Australians of the post-War decades.
You know what you have to do.
