    Abstract

    [Truncated] As Australians define their identity at the turn of the new millennium, very few would consider that their Australianness should be compromised by a concurrent belonging to a greater empire. Even when a majority of Australians voted against a republic in the 1999 referendum, few appear to have done so out of an enduring loyalty to the imperial ties which had once bound Australia and Great Britain so tightly. The ashes of empire today are certainly very cold.
