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.

    ABC, please show the Queen’s message on t.v. about the Cardiv virus. H.M. is the Head of Australia & entitled to speak to her people! We want to hear it, Thankyou.

    God save our Queen. WHAT HAPPENED TO FREE SPEECH. If the ABC is unwilling to listen to the Queen maybe we should do away with the ABC

    It is unusual for Her Majesty to make such an address, and we should hear it in Australia, where we face the same challenges. The ABC is supposed to be a Public Broadcaster and not a lobby for change of our constitutional status. Let’s hear our Queen!

    The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is Australia’s national broadcaster, founded in 1929 modelled on the BBC in the United Kingdom, the ABC is expected not to take editorial stances. Sadly more and more they pursue antagonistic, one-sided narrative the more tax payers find issue at their funding and begin applauding raids and demanding public inquiries and reviews.

    Romanians ask for their Monarchy back (via HM Queen Margareta) and FIRMLY support Monarchies like the British one. We simply LOVE HM Queen Elisabeth II ! Long live The Queen!

    By not broadcasting the address, it nullifies the point of delivering it.

    Michael Potter, the idea of not broadcasting the message is stupid and if deliberate petty.

    HRM’s message to the Commonwealth at the present time of uncertainty and fears will give hope and calm to many suffering the consequences of Covid 19.
