ABC Refuses to Broadcast Queen's Message

ABC Refuses to Broadcast Queen's Message

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.

    It is an outstanding speech with a unifying and healing aspect to her every syllable. This pandemic is worldwide. It brought hope to our shores. It has been widely circulated and graciously received by sharers and readers of it via social media.

    This was an address to the Commonwealth, of which we are still part.

    Shame on the ABC for not being truly Australian. As far as I am concerned we are still part of the Commonwealth and Elizabeth II is still our Queen. We are a Christian country with Christian ethics, morals and laws. If someone doesn’t like that, they can fu*k off and take the management of the ABC with them. I am sick of the media’s supposed political correctness. You are the biggest lot of trouble makers. Why don’t you start reporting the news instead of trying to make it.

    How can a media outlet who is supposed to be a National broadcaster be so seditious to the Government of Australia especially at a time like this? Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the Australian Head of State who has demonstrated by her life to be a servant to the people of the Commonwealth of Nations. But just like “the armchair social justice warriors” who are so blind in their outrage of subjects they know little about, so too is this blatantly obvious “Green Commie staffed organization”. The sooner it is defunded the better as they clearly do not have the best interests of the social welfare of Australians at heart, but like their ‘King’, (no they don’t want that,.. let’s say ‘Kink’) Karl Marx who wrote “In short, the Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.” So their refusal to air The Queens message is following the pattern laid out by Marx.

    Her Majesty the Queen is doing her job for the benefit of the people, the ABC has failed in their job,…….again……

    The Queen is an integral part of many Australian’s lives, it’s unconscionable that you have taken the decision not to broadcast Her Majesty’s message.

    As I understand it the Queen’s speech was addressed to Britons in this case. Nevertheless Australian citizens have a right to expect that such an important announcement from their Sovereign be aired on Australian news. Whatever one’s politics, one must admit that such an announcement is at very least newsworthy and relevant to our current circumstances. Drop the politics ABC and do your duty to the Australian people as our National Broadcaster.
