Queen Elizabeth

Earlier this week the Australian government was ordered to release a number of letters sent to the Queen from Australian primer ministers, after a freedom of information request from independent researcher and blogger William Summers. Most notably, this includes any letters sent by Tony Abbott during his reinstatement of knights and dames. 

Though BuzzFeed reported the government had until mid-February to release the documents, investigative humourist Ben Pobjie has stumbled across a stack of them in a locked cupboard from a Canberra Salvos, and Crikey can now exclusively reveal a selection of Tony Abbott's letters from 2013-15.
