Queen's Speech in progress - seems to be a mix of (in descending order of amount):


  • More top-down and/or middle-class bashing legislation

  • Rhetoric regarding the fragilities of the "modern world" (one which we created, no less) and the solutions needed to survive it

  • Where the Queen is going on holiday this year

  • Some possibly-interesting stuff about communities


Pretty damned useless, really. Be interesting to see if anything comes out of that last point, but the emphasis seems to be on University fees, ID cards, asylum seekers and all the usual other stuff that I disagree with the government on...
