Australian MP Renounces Allegiance

An Australian politician whose father was held in a German labour camp during World War 2 says he plans to renounce his allegiance to the Queen after seeing a photo of Prince Harry wearing a Nazi swastika.
Henry Palaszczuck said he had previously held the Royals in high regard but was troubled at seeing Harry wearing the swastika at a fancy dress party.

"My father suffered enormously at the hands of the Nazis and the stories he told me were horrific,"said Palaszczuck."So to see that image was very upsetting."
Palaszczuck confirmed he would seek to withdraw his allegiance to the Queen-which is part of the oath of office for Australian MPs-at the start of parliamentary proceedings tomorrow.
He also added that he didn't think the Prince's apology went far enough.

"I don't think that counts as a real apology,"he said.

"It wasn't an apology from the heart.It was just the royal doctors going into damage control."

Well said Mr Palaszczuck!It's nice to see that some monarchists are coming to the conclusion that the very idea of monarchy is a farce and that giving people such enormous power and standing can be very damaging.Hopefully more people will follow suit!
