End of an eccentric era. For those of you whose wanderings have taken you to the Province of Hutt River over here in WA....Prince Leonard is to retire afer 46 years of wrangling with the ATO and no doubt many other Federal, State and Local Government departments.

I could not get the link above to activate so did a little digging.
According to this ABC news item the Principality is not being dissolved but Prince Leonard is abdicating and passing 'The Crown' to his son Graeme.
Cheers

Hi New Boy,
PLEASE NOTE, I not trying to be a PIA.
I know I'm not your English teacher and this forum isn't for rocket scientists.
But....
The use of punctuation, would make your post so much easier to read.
After 'reading' your post several times, I got the gist of what you were saying.
Here's hoping you don't think I'm anal, my wife thinks I am. LOL
PS Long live the Prince & Princess Shirley
Insanity doesnt run in my family.... it gallops!

I am curious if he will rejoin Australia for the pension? Would be hypocritical at best.

Don't reckon Lennie needs the pension he owns property in Perth.
