Australian UDI attempt scuttled

image At his meeting with Queen Elizabeth recently, Kevin Rudd turned to the Queen and said: “As I'm the Prime Minister, I'm thinking of changing how my great country is referred to, and I'm thinking imagethat it should be a Kingdom."
The Queen replied, "I'm sorry Mr Rudd, but to be a Kingdom, you have to have a King in charge - and you're not a King."

image Kevin Rudd thought a while and then said: "How about a Principality then?"


To which the Queen replied, "Again, to be a Principality you have to be a Prince - and you're not a Prince, Mr. Rudd."


Rudd thought long and hard and came up with "How about an Empire then?"


The Queen, getting a little annoyed by now, replied : "Sorry again, Mr Rudd, but to be an Empire you must have an Emperor in charge - and you are not an Emperor."


Before Rudd could utter another word, The Queen said: "I think you're doing quite nicely as a Country."
