471 comments

Michael Cullen still regards himself as somewhat of a monarchist, but accepts that there is inevitability about New Zealand eventually becoming a republic.

Addressing the 'Reconstituting the Constitution' conference in Parliament today, the former Deputy Prime Minister said he had been misrepresented in the lead up to the conference; he was neither an ardent monarchist, nor a converted republican, as media reported at the weekend.

Though there was still majority public support to retain the monarchy, he said there "is a certain level of inevitably about a drift towards a republic".
