Time for an Australian Republic?

The Queen is dead....long live the queen?

We all know this headline is coming and coming soon. My question is long after this is it socially acceptable to call for a referendum for an Australian Republic? 

 I strongly believe that the "identity" of a country is driven by choices like this. Even if you think a president or a governor general has no real affect on your day to day life. 

 We can agree to disagree, Big/Small/No Difference....and thats ok....thats what the point of a referendum is. But you only need to look at the EU/UK Brexit referendum to understand that either outcome is ok.....but its important the people are involved and understand how they are being governed. 

 In Australia at the moment there is a total lack of interest in politics - i believe that this is related to our "tiered governing system" in that some upper deity god like has ultimate control........ it is a very different belief system in republics. 

 Anyway....something to think about.
