Opinion: Girls can do everything, just not all at once
Canberra Times Article, by Marie Coleman
That is, The Rabbott took this opportunity of the departure of this well-loved person from this high office, to confuse any celebration by announcing that he was bringing back the out of date honours of Knighthoods and Dames. To rub it in fully, The Rabbott announced that Quentin Bryce was to be the first to be honoured.
There was little doubt that this was just one more act of revenge from this horrible monster along with all the other acts of revenge we have seen this new government hand out to anyone not in their camp.
After all Quentin Bryce dared to have the wish that any boy or girl should be able to aspire to be in the highest office in the land and should be able to choose whoever they wish as their partner in marriage. How dare she have such aspirations!
I remember thinking how far the country had moved in such a short time.
Alas, sadly we now look again today in 2014 and see how far we have reversed in such a short time.
If we were to have a governor-general under the present outdated monarchist system, it was indeed great to have such a warm and intelligent person as Quentin Bryce as that person. She will be missed.
PS: I strongly urge all republicans to take the Rabbott honour system to heart, and for everyone to self anoint themselves as a Sir or Dame (and mix up the genders); everyone should attach the honour to your own name so that everyone becomes a knight or dame. Such is the way of an egalitarian country.
