Brexit dominates Queen's Speech to UK parliament - BBC News

Queen Elizabeth II has outlined the UK government's legislative agenda - what laws they plan to introduce in this parliamentary session at the State Opening of Parliament. But this Queen's Speech, the first in over two years, was delivered in the midst of the political and constitutional crisis provoked by Brexit and drafted by a government with no majority in the House of Commons. So there were immediate questions about whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson could deliver this programme -- which included planned measures on crime, health, and delivering Brexit on the 31st October. Opposition parties say that with an election in the offing, the Queen's Speech was a sham.
