British still get final say

So, British people who have declined to take out Australian citizenship are still allowed to vote on whether we should become a republic.

But if those people are so attached to their British citizenship that they don't even want to become a part of our country, doesn't that mean, they're likely still to be scraping and bowing to the monarchy?

Such a weighted vote for a start makes a mockery of the process.
