John Howard at Buck House

Some years ago, when former Prime Minister of Australia, John Howard, was at Buckingham Palace, he suggested to the Queen that Australia should become a kingdom.

"But Mr Howard," Her Majesty replied. "Orstralia can't be a kingdom, because you are not a king."

"Then maybe we should be an empire," Little Johnny replied.

"I'm sorry, for Orstralia to become an empire, first you'd have to be an emperor. Quite impossible."

"Then, a principality?"

"No, Mr Howard. Only if you were a prince. I think Australia must remain a country."
