Good morning Mumsnetters,Newsnight's Michael Crick is coming to visit and wants to know about what we all think of the government's plans as to be revealed (but of course already heavily trailed) in the Queen's Speech Today.Here's a helpful summary from the BBC.So what are your thoughts please?
Oh and possibly allowing Lords to resign from HoL (meaning Mandelson cd come back to the commons)
If not a touch Christmassey, that's the spirit Liz.
BBC Parliament are covering this in the style of a royal funeral
are we all on BBCNews24Ive got Speakie on
Oh yes, do let's get rid of hereditary peers once and for all.
Mmmm I fancy a turkey sandwich(Am in favour of reform for HoL, actually.)
BBC Democracy Live online. The commentary is fantastic.
yes hereditary full stop is good news I think.I agree Mandy's silver slippers make it all worth while.
Oh yes, News24 more politics and less fashion
I like my father's idea that hereditary lords be replaced by a national lottery...might give the population a reason to pay attention to politics if they thought 'it could be you'.
I love all the pomp. It is so much more interestig than the way most countries announce new legislation. It very much adds to the gaiety of nations.
I thought Dejevsky in Indie yesterday about fact that dramatic deficit reduction IS poss without massive social damage was interesting - report from CentreForum<takes off hat, is stranger>
Many laughs at MPs MP (hmmm, an MP squared?) and his irate constituents.
Oooh I love a bit of pomp and a handsome policeman
love'the gaiety of nations' aub.
Couldn't be any worse than current arrangement could it?Bercow's not wearing silk stockings. Well, not today anyway.
Of course, what it really lacks is a Malcolm Tucker...
lol 'less fashion' pw. Though mace was illegal?
<aubergines, did you used to be another vegetable?>
hope no-one emerges from Robing Room with dress tucked into tights..
'You don't see that procession at any other event' - well no Huw. Because it's floridly insane.
it is lovely and gayI was once taken around the houses by Lord Rogers of QuarrybankI kissed Tony Blair's seat (all true)
Were chambers entered mp?
Keep expecting Darcy to ride up the centre aisle
