Phillip Adams – lightly edited, admittedly – is harsh but fair:

The best arguments for the ABC don’t revolve around lofty issues of democracy. They concern compassion. For the ABC is a sheltered workshop to protect woeful journalists, amongst some of the most vacuous and vulnerable of our citizens.

Far from keeping the plebs out, the ABC’s high railings and security guards are there to keep them in, safe from the harsh realities that force similarly dysfunctional leftoids to live in cardboard boxes on Sydney’s streets, where any day or cold night of the week you’ll see old ladies as worthy as Liz Jackson wheeling their worldly goods around in supermarket trolleys.

Phil continues: “Have you ever heard one of them say anything interesting, let alone original or even mildly intelligent?” He’s on fire!

UPDATE. Adams writes of the royals: “Australia yearns to be rid of them.” Doesn’t he remember the referendum on the republic?

UPDATE II. Imre Salusinszky writes: “Here’s an argument for constitutional monarchy. And here’s the republican case.”
