21 June 2017 - The Queen's Speech

The Queen's speech: What is in it and everything you need to know
Laura Hughes (The Telegraph, 21/06/2017)

Today's Queen’s Speech - which lays out the laws that ministers want to pass in the coming year - is a major moment in the parliamentary diary.

It is seen as a critical test for the Government and failure to win the backing of a majority of MPs is seen as a vote of no confidence.

This year's speech, which will take place at 11.30am, is expected to be overshadowed by 'day of rage' protests by left wing campaigners in protest over the conditions they claim led to the Grenfell Tower blaze and the deaths of at least 79 people.

Corbyn called May’s minority administration “a government without a majority, without a mandate, without a serious legislative programme, led by a prime minister who has lost her political authority, and is struggling to stitch together a deal to stay in office”.

Queen’s Speech ends with ‘f**k this’
(Daily Mash, 21/06/2017)
 
THE Queen’s Speech has ended abruptly with the words ‘fuck this,’ spoken halfway through a sentence, before the monarch wandered off.

The speech, a series of meaningless commitments, proceeded as normal until Her Majesty paused, looked around the chamber and decided she had had enough.

Julian Cook, Tory MP for Norfolk South, said: “She was supposed to be moving on to our exciting new plans to regulate the internet as a prelude to closing it down entirely, but instead she just stopped, sighed and looked at us with an expression of severe disdain.
