Today, the Queen gave her speech opening parliament and describing her governments legislative programme for this session. The good things in the speech from a Lib Dem perspective are:

  • Green Investment Bank
  • Banking Reform
  • Bringing Fair Trade to domestic UK products so Supermarkets don’t give a bad deal to British Farmers
  • Reforming the electricity market
  • Reforming pensions (Steve Webb has been at the front leading on this)
  • Libel Reform (something that Julian Huppert has been leading on in parliament)
  • House of Lords reform
  • Meeting the 0.7% in International Aid
  • Shared Parental Leave

The Bad thing for LibDems in particular is the online snooping draft bill. It has been demoted to draft bill but I simply don’t believe it should pass in any form coz its not possible and currently goes against LibDem policy.

I only saw a fraction of Ed’s reply to the Queen’s speech but it was so funny…
