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.

    Why can’t Australian Taxpayers listen to Her Majesty’s address to the Commonwealth? Sorry ABC, you probably didn’t catch up on the news: Comrade Shorten was soundly rejected by the voters at the last General Election. (You should really try and stay abreast of the news, ABC: try tuning in to Seven, TEN or Channel 9).

    The ABC, as the public broadcaster, should broadcast The Queen’s Message.

    The population is stressed, people uncertain of what the future holds and in many cases individuals are expressing genuinely fear.

    Our whole way of life has rapidly changed. People are falling ill and deaths have occurred.

    As the national broadcaster, the ABC has a responsibility to act in a manner that supports the changed posture we have all had to adopt.

    Unless there is some sort of technical reason for their decision, I cannot think of any rationale for the ABC to not broadcast a message from HM The Queen.

    What valid reason can the ABC provide for not broadcasting this message? Australia is a Commonwealth country, and a Realm country as well. The Queen is the Queen of Australia, whether the powers that be in the ABC like it or not. No wonder the people of this country are going off the ABC – because the biased ABC is going off!

    Since when does this piece of trash, who gobbles up our money, decide what the public want….an overseer of this organisation is well overdue. Where is Ida Buttrose….in hiding again?
