There were you thinking it was yours & my government & parliament, but it’s Queen Lizzy’s & she came to her parliament this morning to tell us about what her government proposes to do in this session of parliament, well at least the whole pomp & pageantry there usually is with the Official State Opening Of Parliament was a great deal more toned down this time round, Lizzy didn’t travel to parliament in a gold carriage rubbing everybody’s face in the fact the royals are the part of the wealthy few who ain’t been affected by austerity whilst the rest of us rot because of austerity, however there were still way too many peeps in stupid costumes involved for my liking, if you want to dress up in silly costumes go join the local amateur dramatics society or the circus & stay out of parliament, oh yes I hope for the day when we dump the monarchy & have a parliament & government truly of the peeps.
I know I’m probably not the only one hoping for the day when we dump the monarchy & truly have a government of the peeps for the peeps, plenty of peeps are saying bollocks to the Tory establishment & all the misery it reeks, they were outside parliament protesting against the Queen’s Speech but you’d not of heard any mention of this in the mainstream news media as they’ve not been rioting, maybe for once agent provocateur plants employed the establishment failed to whip up trouble to discredit the political left.
As for content of Lizzy’s speech, well her government wanting to do the same old Tory bollocks, though the Tories did leave out repealing the ban on fox hunting, creating more grammar schools & gerrymandering constituency borders to suit them electorally, so at least to that we can say phew! What the Tories did propose in the Queen’s Speech are more powers for the police but no extra funding, yep very Tory wanting a police state on a shoestring & this won’t combat the threat of terrorism, there was mention of building more housing which is fair enough as we certainly do need to build a shit ton of housing to meet the need for housing there is, but the housing the Tories propose to build won’t be the kind of housing which is going to meet that need you know affordable housing, plus how about ensuring the housing there already is, particularly social housing is safe & habitable for peeps to dwell in which is kind a penitent issue right now, but fuck all mention of that from Lizzy was there!
Considering the Tories have lost their majority in the House of Commons & have no majority in the House Of Lords, much of what the Tories are proposing they want to do ain’t likely to get done ha ha, one gets the feeling this won’t be the last time this year that Lizzy will be visiting her parliament to give a speech about her government will be wanting to do, but if there is a general election in October then its likely at the Official State Opening Of Parliament which comes after will be full of proposals of a government far more for the peeps as it will be a government which is headed by Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister.
