For more than three decades, Melanie Phillips has served as Britain’s political conscience. Followed by members of the Royal Family as well as by homemakers, ubiquitous on radio and television as well as in the print media, Melanie Phillips is widely regarded as an indispensable force for good in the battle to restore western civilization.
Melanie Phillips’s relationship with her millions of followers has always been conducted through traditional media outlets, such as the BBC, the Daily Mail and the Guardian. Now, she is reaching out beyond broadcasting and the world of print to connect directly with her many supporters.
Asked why she had launched her own media company, Melanie Phillips said: “Speaking truth to power, standing up for the little guy and giving voice to those on the decent, commonsense, middle ground who find themselves marginalized by the gatekeepers of public discourse. That’s the mission of my new venture.”
