Letters to the Editor || Surely I must protest || G.T.W. Agnew

Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

On behalf of all devotees of our second-hand monarchy and constitutional muddle, I must protest at Scott Morrison being reported as meeting his counterpart in Indonesia.

President Widodo is nothing of the kind.  

He is the equivalent and equal of the Queen.  

It is an outrageous breach of protocol to say that he is the counterpart of some glory-grabbing Australian politician.  

Monarchists everywhere can only be much embarrassed by this.  

They must also be cooing with gratitude that Scott Morrison is allowed to walk beside the President of Indonesia instead of behind him, where the Prime Minister of Australia really should be.
