New Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull ready to redefine relationship with Britain

02, Nov 2015

To Australia now where the new Prime Minister appears to be ready to redefine his country’s relationship with Britain. The pro-republic Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull this morning scrapped the famous titles of knights and dames from the nation's honours system. Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, a staunch monarchist, reintroduced the antiquated honours in 2014, provoking criticism that he was out of touch with public sentiment. Abbott was ousted by Turnbull in a party coup in September.
