In a recent article on the ABC's 'The Drum Unleashed' website, Mike Keating and the editor of Independent Australia, David Donovan,  talked about monarchist myths about an Australian republic and, in particular, the specious 'ain't broke, don't fix it' argument.

That is, that the cost of becoming a republic would be so incredibly high that it would cripple the nation with debt for generations, or such like.
