Abstract

Since taking office in 2012, the Attorney-General for Queensland and Minister for Justice, Jarrod Bleijie MP has made a conscious effort to reintroduce symbols of the monarchy. Queensland’s own Glorious Revolution has seen Senior Counsels replaced with Queen’s Counsels, the new government logo replaced with the traditional Coat-of-Arms, the new law courts named the reigning British Monarch, and a political fight over the royal succession laws. This short note takes an historical and discursive look at the Minister’s contribution to Queen’s land.

Keywords: great leap backward, jarrod bleijie, monarchy, republic, queensland
