Australian PM Tony Abbot: Monarch is fountain of justice and honor

April 21, 2014

According to the Guardian:

And what about prime minister Tony Abbott? An avowed monarchist, he wrote in 2006 that:

In each case, the monarch represents that ideal of duty and service that is always beyond the reach of actual human beings but towards which all should strive.
