The "Queen's Speech" is merely delivered by her. Everything in it is
produced by the Administration. In a sense, she is a puppet figure used by
politicians of the day to tell we Brits how the administration plans to
shaft us during the following year. So her nod to the Bush administration
was Blair's nod. The man has become nearly as arrogant as Bush. He has
ordained a "conversation" with the British people to "help" develop policy.
This is in fact a con, as whatever the British people say, he will do what
he wants anyhow. As he said himself recently, he only goes forward (with
pre-determined plans) and has "no reverse gear."
