Chucky Is Yucky

A majority of Australians would like to sever constitutional ties with Great Britain if Prince Charles becomes King.

Now there’s a real confidence booster!

The poll published in The Weekend Australian found 46 percent of Australians believed Australia should become a republic, while 34 percent wanted the British monarch to remain Australia’s head of state.

But if Charles, the first in line for the throne, replaced his mother Queen Elizabeth II, who turns 80 in April, support for a republic would rise to 52 percent and opposition would slide to 29 percent, the poll said.

A referendum to make Australia a republic with a president replacing the British monarch as head of state was defeated in 1999.

Charles’ popularity has suffered since he divorced Princess Diana, who blamed his current wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, for ruining their marriage. Diana died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

All together now – Looooooosssserrrr!

I knew there was a reason to like Australia.
