Favourite 14 things people had to say about the Queen’s Speech
Boris Johnson’s government set out “ambitious” policies on all sorts of things including crime, the environment and – inevitably – Brexit in today’s Queen’s Speech.
And the reason they’re so ambitions is because he’s got a self-inflicted majority of minus 43 so he’s never going to get any of them passed. Still, a handy way of getting your election manifesto out early.
"As the UK leaves the EU, my government will ensure that it continues to play a leading role in global affairs"

Slightly paradoxical bit of Queen's speech on measures "to provide dignity in old age" as said queen, aged 93, is forced to dress up as the White Witch from Narnia and read out several pages of utter guff about bills which will never happen.

Boris Johnson looked like he was trying to crack a few jokes.
Jeremy Corbyn looked like he wanted to tell the lying racist fool to fuck off. #QueensSpeech

The people who banged on about the extravegance of the EU parliament have been awfully quiet about a horse-drawn stage coach delivering a massive jeweled crown to sit on top of an actual Queen this morning
