The Queen’s speech – Round One!

Posted by Matt Walker on November 19, 2009

When Gordon met Dave Yesterday, the Queen’s speech was delivered in the House of Lords, and who knows what her gracious majesty made of the political slanging match down the corridor in the Commons.

As you would expect, Brown accused the Tories of getting everything wrong, and well, Cameron accused Brown of getting everything wrong.

Gordon Brown proclaimed:

Labour [is] the only party with the policies to build a long term recovery…. the Conservatives had been wrong on every single issue we have faced in economic policy this year.

David Cameron countered by saying the Queen’s speech was a:

Labour press release on Palace parchment….They have run out of money, they have run out of time,  they have run out of ideas…

Nick Clegg also thrust his sword into the fray, describing the speech as:

…a fantasy package full of unnecessary measures.

I have a feeling that next year’s general election could get quite bloody!
