Queen’s Speech to set out Tory legislative plans

Queen Elizabeth delivers her 65th Queen’s Speech, setting out her government’s legislative agenda, at today’s State Opening of Parliament.

Even though the speech’s provisions will likely be overshadowed by – or provide welcome respite from – the ongoing debate over next month’s EU referendum, there is set to be some interesting things, from prison reform to a British Bill of Rights. It could also mark the first time the monarch has publicly said the words “driverless cars.”

Meanwhile, The Sun’s recent headline on the aforementioned referendum was found to be “significantly misleading” by the press regulatory body Ipso. Does the Sun care? Likely not.
