Queen's Speech mdi-fullscreen

Guido is a bit surprised that not a word was mentioned about the Kelly proposals to clean up and reform parliament. Nick Clegg is right, they should have concentrated on this because most of the legislation proposed is merely an attempt to draw out dividing lines and trap the Tories.   The Tories are unlikely to fall for any of this, so the most practical thing that an honourable government could have done is clean up parliament and implement the Kelly reforms before the general election.  Both Clegg and Cameron have said their parties would support the Kelly package.  On the whole the feeling around Westminster was very “is that all there is?”

Andrew Lansley and Theresa May will be holding a press conference first thing tomorrow morning to launch the Conservative Party’s campaign against Labour’s plans to cut disability benefits for pensioners.  Gordon’s populist care-in-the-home plan seems to be unraveling – it is to be financed by taking away benefits from elderly disabled. That will make an already rebellious Labour backbench unhappy…
