    Great idea:

    Righties and Monarchists becoming outraged in 3, 2, 1...

    Labor would consult with the community about the timing of the change, and would be likely to wait until Queen Elizabeth’s reign ends before formalising the new holiday


    Lol

    Question... WTF is a Luke Foley?


    In all seriousness though if they want to create a public holiday in memory/celebration of indigenous history, it would be better to pick a specific day rather than just take over one of the “no one cares what this is for, let just go get drunk” long weekends.

    Create a whole new public holiday...

    Excellent idea that Danish :)

    I’d still rename queens birthday holiday to something more relevant though.

    Tis a pity Andy B appears to be on holiday. The frothing at the mouth of conservatives at his blog over this would be an absolute joy to witness :joy::joy::joy:

    Can never have too many public holidays.


    I also kinda like the backhanded nature of holding the “queens bday” public holiday on just any old random Monday each state chooses as opposed to the old duck’s actual bday.

    You do realise that it wasn’t even really Lizzie’s Birthday yesterday anyway?

    Well if we don't have a queen we won't have a queen's birthday holiday anyway will we.

    Lukey continuing to focus on the big issues that really matter.

    And then Chuck takes the reins and we still have a foreign monarch’s birthday on a day that they don’t even celebrate their actual birthday anyway, so better to change the focus of the public holiday into something that is more meaningful and relevant to us as a nation.

    Yes, like the other Mob: replacing Olympic Stadiums which don’t even need replacing when the money could be better spent on building more hospitals and schools

    As a country we have bigger fish to fry PJ

    If a bunch of leftists want to feel guilty about being born the wrong colour it's their problem

    Yes, I know... like taxpayers funding of Chuck and Camilla whenever they fly out here for a tour.

    Not to mention any other Royal who wants to sponge off the Australian people.

    Ahhh

    The old “we have bigger issues” because multiple issues are never on the go at once...

    Always a cracker of a position.
