What value, if any, is there in retaining the monarchy?

Date:        Monday 16th April 2018, 7.30pm
Venue:    the back room of the Tiger Inn, Lairgate, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 8JG

Our speaker for our April meeting was HERHG committee member Dr Lisa Whitehouse who made the case for the abolition of the monarchy:

“In light of the ‘Paradise Papers’ and the upcoming Royal wedding questions are being raised (yet again) about the role of the monarchy. While acknowledging the well rehearsed arguments both in favour of and against the abolition of the monarchy, this talk will focus on assessing the legitimacy and value of the British monarchy. Regardless of whether it reaffirms your view on the monarchy or causes you to reassess it, the hope is that this timely and topical presentation will, at the very least, provoke a lively discussion.”
