I've seen as lot of protests for the Queen to sack Scott Morrison.I know the Queen didn't normally involve herself in Politics but she has done it's once before in Australia.Do you think she will/should.

When did she sack an Australian Prime Minister?

Are you referring to Whitlam? His government was at stalemate and the Governor General went for a double dissolution. Bit different to a PM who's a total tosser. If that was the criteria, the Queen (or G-G as her representative) would be sacking everyone.

No I don’t. I really don’t like ScoMo ( i voted for the other side) but unless he does something illegal, we need to be left to sort out our own politicians.

He’s a terrible politician, with awful advisors but he’s not bad enough for the Queen to step in.

I dare say the queen has enough in house drama to deal with....

She doesn’t seem to be doing anything to prevent the break up of the Union so I can’t see her getting involved in Australia.

Yes!!! She should guillotine the fat, corrupt, bastard!

After Whitlam was sacked by the Governor-General in 1975 the Queen was asked to reinstate him. She refused.

Why anyone thinks she would now remove an elected Prime Minister - one with a majority who can can pass supply bills through the senate - is beyond me.

Scott Morrison is awful but people on Twitter have entered some kind of fever dream if they think the Queen is going to step in.

The protests weren't asking the Queen to get rid of ScoMo. Liz has had enough to deal with in the last couple of weeks without our nonsense.

There are a lot of twitter pages asking her to

It's inconceivable she wouid act just because someone is unpopular/controversial

I'm not sure that the Queen has started firing prime ministers because some on Twitter asked her to !

Don't be daft. ScoMo is a prick but the Queen is hardly going to interfere!

justilou1 Mon 20-Jan-20 10:48:39

Doesn’t mean I actually think she pays attention to it... would be nice though... odious little gimp that he is.

I am enjoying the fantasy that the Queen kicks ScoMo's arse to the kerb, though. So thanks for the thread! Now whenever I have to hear his lying voice, I can keep myself sane with the Queen.

Scott Morrison is a dickhead. But he is an elected dickhead. I disagree with my fellow Australians' choice of Prime Minister but I might be moved to violence if the unelected head of state of foreign country attempted to remove him from office.

Australia needs to get rid of the entire royal family/Commonwealth connection. We don't need it anymore. They add nothing. It is ridiculous.

We need to ditch both Queen and ScoMo (but ScoMo first). My firey son is in bits and has just been diagnosed with PTSD after his experiences over the past few months so I am not feeling particularly benevolent at the moment!

Completely agree @SnowsInWater. Your poor son. So grateful to all our fireys.

Can she sack Boris too then? In fact she should do that first.

Elindab Tue 21-Jan-20 04:25:20

Ooh! I live in Australia and never even heard a whisper if this. Unfortunately! It would be glorious drama! If only she would.

StartupRepair Tue 21-Jan-20 05:05:19

Our constitution would not actually permit it. People should not have voted him in - he was clearly an idiot with a bad agenda.

Hope your son gets a bit of a break soon.
