“Well I am a republican, and I think there’s a lot of passion for having an Australian head of state,” the Federal Innovation and Science Minister told FiveAA.

“I think this debate will fire up much more when the Queen is no longer on the throne…the Australian public might have quite a different view than they do now.”

The minister’s comments follow yesterday’s SA whistlestop by Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, as they kicked off their six-day tour of Australia.
