AUSTRALIAN HEAD OF STATE

The last time I looked we had an Australian head of state, Sir Peter Cosgrove.  True the Queen of England is the figurehead but all powers are invested in him.  If we move to a republic we introduce a third component to Government.  The party in power, the opposition and a president.  On top of this the cost increases dramatically.  The need for a costly third election and support staff for the president.  Just look at the money spent on the last US Election.

The Govenor General is divorced from the Government unless there is a need to disolve parliament.

So, be careful what you wish for.  The grass is not always greener on the other side.
