This topic has come up politically as to whether Australia should cede from the U.K and become a Republic, as of now, it is still subject to British rule, and Queen Elizabeth is recognized as the reigning Monarch. The Question is, do you support Royalism, or a Republic Government. (This has nothing to do with the American political party)

Yeah, sorry, don't know much about the Australian system (also wouldn't this be better in the Counter-Point?)

So is Australia still actually influenced by the U.K., or is it just one of those matters where maybe the Queen pops up on your currency once in a while?

I say republic. Seeing as in a modern time and age a royal family doesn't have any function besides being figureheads without any real power, I say get rid of them and use the absurd amount of money we spend on them for something more usefull.

I'm fairly sure it's the exact same deal over there as it's in Canada.

Hey, if it works, dont fix it. Who cares if the queen is your figure head, having a cultural head sounds fun.

Australia does just fine as it is already. Who cares if royalism is archaic? People love figureheads, a cultural icon they can relate to (in general). The idea that republics and democracies are more civilized is an arrogant and narrow minded assumption.

Now if Australian people decide to cry out and vy for change? Then let them have change. Otherwise, who cares, and what is the point?
