    Thank you, Prime Minister Scott Morrison for leaving the ABC financing as it is. I am a regular viewer of the ABC news and appreciate its balanced reporting – when it occurs.

    However, I also note the unnecessary expenditure on outside news broadcasting – for example outside the commercial or hospital buildings to report on newsworthy events. The cost of an outside crew compared with the facts being reported from the news desk, accompanied with a still shot if relevant, is ridiculous and defies any rational thought.

    Congratulating the Prime Minister

    Labor leader, Anthony Albanese has called on the prime minister to provide more funding to the ABC. The prime minister has rejected the call and should be congratulated.

    To the Prime Minister, the Hon. Scott Morrison MP

    I applaud your decision in dismissing the call from Labor leader, Anthony Albanese, to reverse the government’s funding freeze on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

    Queen Elizabeth is the queen of Australia, and her issued and televised addresses and speeches, should always be broadcast and published by the Australian media outlets.

    ABC Refuses to Broadcast Queen's Message

    WE WON - THE ABC AIRED THE BROADCAST JUST PRIOR TO THEIR 7 PM NEWS ON MONDAY 6 APRIL.
    There is therefore no need to sign the petition, although, if you are new to the Australian Monarchist League, please consider signing up to receive our updates.

    The Queen's Message can be viewed here.

     

    Other than at Christmas, the Queen has made few televised addresses but she is to make an address to the Commonwealth tomorrow, Sunday 5 April 2020.

    However,our understanding is that the ABC is purposefully not broadcasting the message. We call on all monarchists to sign this online petition calling on the public broadcaster to air the message from the Queen of Australia to her people.

    I call on the Australian Broadcasting Authority to broadcast the message from the Queen which is to be released on Sunday 5 April, 2020.
