Monarchy should be Abolished
Wed 29 March 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Proposing is Mark Sutton who has been the coordinator for Republic in Yorkshire for nearly all of our 5 year history.
Although originally from Garforth, he spent most of his adult life in Wakefield (to which he considers himself a son of, and still avidly follows Wakefield Trinity RLFC), before relocating to Newark on Trent in 2007 to be with his now wife, Elle.
He works in the Accounts section for a large Electrical company, and away from Republic and Rugby League has a life long obsession with music (having something of a photographic memory for a tune).
Opposing is Graham Sproule who is a member of the British Monarchist Society and serves it as a Media Secretary and Ambassador for Commonwealth and International Relations.
Among the numerous public campaigns he has been involved in, he led the National Capital Region's local 'No MMP' campaign which helped defeat a ballot initiative to change the Province of Ontario's electoral system to one of proportional representation. Sproule joined the Ottawa Branch of the Monarchist League of Canada in high school, and has been active in supporting monarchist activities since that time.
