In this edition, Gareth Seward debates the economic pros and cons of the British monarchy by comparing house prices, economic growth, national debt, inflation and government spending of the 1950s when Queen Elizabeth II was crowned to the country of today while drawing parallels between the Ukraine intervention and the Korean War in how both have been used as the scapegoat for increasing the cost of living, Mike Swadling celebrates the sense of national togetherness instilled by the monarchy and how the Queen has brought about political stability in the face of increasingly presidential Prime Ministers as well as looking at the cultural, political, economic and international benefits of the Royal family, and James Goad examines the Queen’s functional role as head of state while questioning her tacit approval of unpalatable laws and speculates whether this is a sign of institutional corruption while citing historical examples.
The Free Speech bulletin is a weekly electronic publication of political, social, economic and cultural thought from Britain’s pioneering free thinkers. With a focus on politics beyond the propaganda, Free Speech aims to give a voice to smaller pro-liberty political parties, organisations and individuals whose ideas and perspectives have been silenced by the mainstream. Packed with concise yet informative articles, Free Speech intends to challenge corporate media by presenting accurate and truthful accounts of current affairs that empower individuals to value liberty.
