Queen’s Speech

December 3, 2008

A very short speech with only 12 bills plus two old ones and nothing very exciting or radical to catch the eye. But as always we have another Immigration Bill to support Government rhetoric of being tough on illegal immigration!

Could the reduced number of bills hint at an early election with Labour MP’s being given as much time as possible to spend in their constituencies and away from Westminster? The speech will be in any event overshadowed by the Speaker’s statement to MP’s on the Damian Green arrest which will be live blogged at Conserativehome. And to ensure this matter becomes partisan, the Dark Lord has entered into the fray with his customary and accusatory comments.
