Queen’s Speech used to reiterate Britain’s commitment to Brexit deadline on October 31

Australian Broadcasting

Britain’s commitment to leave the European Union on October 31 has been reiterated by Queen Elizabeth in her speech to parliament.

The Queen’s Speech is the highlight of a day of elaborate pageantry in Westminster and is used to detail all the bills the Government wants to enact in the coming year.

It is written for the 93-year-old monarch by the Government.

Key points:

  • PM Boris Johnson has been accused of using the politically neutral Queen to set out his election agenda
  • The speech set out legislation to implement a Brexit deal if Mr Johnson is unable to reach a deal with the EU
  • Mr Johnson runs a minority government and has been unable to win a single vote in Parliament since July

MY NOTE: Brexit was passed by a vote of the people. It is the duty of government to carry out the peoples’ will!

But with Brexit in the balance before a crucial week of talks, and an unpredictable election likely soon, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been accused by rival parties of misusing the politically neutral Queen by asking her to set out his election agenda.

The speech and accompanying notes set out an overview of more than 20 bills, including the legislation that is required to implement a Brexit deal if Mr Johnson is able to reach agreement with the EU this week.

“My Government’s priority has always been to secure the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union on 31 October,” the Queen said.

“My Government intends to work towards a new partnership with the European Union, based on free trade and friendly cooperation.”

    The Queen spoke about Brexit a few years back, and it was my impression she supported Brexit. The insufferable Prince Whatsits, the Queen’s son and successor, was against Brexit.
    So one suspects the Queen may not have disagreed all that much with Boris’ objectives. After all, Boris did see the Queen before scheduling the Queen’s speech, did he not?

    Love all the pageantry associated with this, but sure would not care to be involved in it!

    I believe she mesmerizes everyone with her sparkly diamonds. I know they sure do get my attention! Even her gown seems encrusted. God save the queen!

    My DH calls me an old crow. I’m attracted to sparkly things! Lol!

    I find it curious that some 243ish years after the US implemented its own Brexit we still wonder why the Brit elitists don’t listen to the people.

    As with the US elitists the Brit elitists on’t give a rodent’s backside what the chavvy think. After all, the Magna Carta put limits on the Crown, not the elites. Britain still doesn’t have a Constitution so it has to rely upon crumbs thrown to it by Parliament and the courts, the people don’t give government its rights, government grants whatever rights it ants to the people.

    Sounds like the Queen intends to BREXIT. I hope it does happen. Looks like Boris has the same problem our President Trump does………….the Elites want to hold on to power and money.

    Just exactly what power does the Queen really hold in government? She seems to be just a figurehead with relatively little power and even less will to use what power she may have. Just an American view from what is being said and done by “Her government”! And she never stepped in when May went all squirrelly and weak kneed with the EU!
    What good is a monarchy when you are ruled by the EU and no longer have your sovereignty??

    No, I don’t follow the powerless monarchy, so yes, I am probably missing a lot. 🙂
