Graham Smith is our principal spokesperson for all media interviews.  Graham has extensive experience in debating the issues of republicanism and the monarchy, including on BBC News, Today Programme, BBC Breakfast, ITN, CNN, Oxford Union, Cambridge Union, Durham Union and countless other radio and TV programmes on Radio 4, Radio Five Live, local and commercial radio stations, UK and overseas TV and live events.

Avoid the myths!

A lot of myths and misunderstandings are recycled through our news media.  We ask that journalists spend some time looking at our Monarchy Myth Buster and Know the Facts pages.

Please keep three things in mind: 

  1. The monarchy is a political institution, steeped in power and vested interest
  2. There is no evidence that the monarchy is good for tourism or a benefit to the UK economy
  3. Broadcasters have a duty to report the monarchy impartially and in the same manner they would report any other political issue.
