BMS in Metro: State Portrait Project with Joy Morrissey MP


The Metro has featured The British Monarchists Society in a report about the Society’s latest campaign to celebrate her Majesty by creating a Head of State portrait scheme modelled after than of Australia and Canada. Joy Morrisey MP who is spearheading this initiative has received backlash for this campaign, as many without the facts of or outline of the scheme have accused her of tax-payer funded expense, which is not true.

Joy Morrissey enthusiastically backed the idea as she unveiled a picture of the monarch she’ll be hanging in her own office in parliament. Along with the British Monarchists Society, her campaign wants the Government to make portraits of the queen available to ‘every home, company and institution that would like one.’ Critics have dismissed the idea as a ‘huge waste of money.’
