The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Queen's Speech - forward not back?

Well the Prime Minister Gordon B.... I mean Tony Blair has written New Labour's speech, and our Queen has dutifully set out the legislative agenda for the next parliamentary session. Some interesting Bills - however one thing that really struck me was some of the more intolerant measures that may well be included in some of the fine detail once they are published. Mandatory ID cards' a smoking ban and so on. This is the area where there is a distinct difference between the two major parties. One believes the state knows best, and one trusts the people. Interestingly it look like we can look forward to a vote on our relationship with the EU - the first time such a vote will have been held in this 30 year olds lifetime.
