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.

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.
