They were not amused. Queen Elizabeth II opened Parliament with her annual speech today, spelling out a litany of initiatives and legislation traditionally dictated by the prevailing government. But British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's growing chorus of critics assailed it as a bread-and-butter Conservative Party manifesto ahead of probable new elections — a likelihood if MP's reject the message.
What did the speech contain? It contained 26 bills, including seven Brexit-related regulatory measures, as well as seven tough-on-crime bills. It also spelled out initiatives to improve health care and environmental regulation, as well as assure that restaurant tips go to servers, and not management.
