Texte du rabat

Using previously secret government documents, The Chameleon Crown makes clear that the Australian States remained colonial dependencies of the British Crown until 1986 when the Australia Act was passed. For many decades, historians, lawyers, and politicians believed that the British governments role in advising the Queen on State matters was simply a formality. This book reveals that U.K. governments never deviated from the view that no Australian government--State or federal--had any right to advise the Crown on matters concerning the States. Furthermore, British Ministers declared that they could take into account not only legal and constitutional issues when advising the Queen on State matters, but also, the political and economic interests of the U.K. The Chameleon Crown takes the reader into the confidential negotiations between the States, the Commonwealth, the British government, and Buckingham Palace on the termination of the colonial links between the States and the U.K.
