The more I think about this speech, the more sickened I am. It is not the Queen's speech at all.
The conduct of the Badman review is in question, currently facing a select committee, yet the government still saw fit to publish the Children, Schools and Families Bill based on its flawed findings and spoon-feed her Maj with it. The bill is full of assertions based on estimates and figures plucked out of the air. Is this really what UK legislation is based on - guesswork and whimsy? Proud to be British? Not recently.
