Queen’s Speech Today

Wonktastic punditry to be expected across the blogosphere today. Guido will still be concentrating on the important things, like John Prescott telling that essential part of Britain’s unwritten constitution, the BBC Radio 4 Today programme this morning “Fox-hunting? Cor blimey! What are we getting worried about fox-hunting for? Iraq’s a very serious question, fox-hunting isn’t.” So non-serious that they invoked the Parliament Act. (Incidentally, can it be true that Tony Banks was boisterously swigging champagne and singing the Internationale with a few other class warriors on the night they saved the fox?)

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
