Default A renewed push for Australia to become a republic

I don't know what has brought it on, but there seems to be a renewed push for this place to become a republic. Granted this is an op ed piece by Turnbull, he goes over the options being considered:

The questions no one in the lamestream media are asking are:

- why the renewed push for a republic now?
- will all legal (and royal) ties be cut with the UK should a republic be declared?
- in the event of all ties being cut with the UK, what happens to the whole country being "vested in the crown"?
- will any real reforms be made to governance in this country should a republic be declared or is this a purely ceremonial in intent?
