The Queen's speech - Her Majesty confirms British Government's plan to leave the European Union on 31 October
Monday, 14 October 2019
My Lords and Members of the House of Commons.
My Government’s priority has always been to secure the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union on 31 October. My Government intends to work towards a new partnership with the European Union, based on free trade and friendly cooperation [European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill].
My Ministers will work to implement new regimes for fisheries, agriculture and trade, seizing the opportunities that arise from leaving the European Union [Fisheries Bill, Agriculture Bill and Trade Bill]. An immigration bill, ending free movement, will lay the foundation for a fair, modern and global immigration system. My Government remains committed to ensuring that resident European citizens, who have built their lives in, and contributed so much to, the United Kingdom, have the right to remain. The bill will include measures that reinforce this commitment [Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill]. Steps will be taken to provide certainty, stability and new opportunities for the financial services and legal sectors [Financial Services Bill and Private International Law (Implementation of Agreements) Bill].
My Government’s new economic plan will be underpinned by a responsible fiscal strategy, investing in economic growth while maintaining the sustainability of the public finances.
Measures will be brought forward to support and strengthen the National Health Service, its workforce and resources, enabling it to deliver the highest quality care. New laws will be taken forward to help implement the National Health Service’s Long Term Plan in England, and to establish an independent body to investigate serious healthcare incidents [Health Service Safety Investigations Bill].
My Government will bring forward proposals to reform adult social care in England to ensure dignity in old age. My Ministers will continue work to reform the Mental Health Act to improve respect for, and care of, those receiving treatment.
My Government is committed to addressing violent crime, and to strengthening public confidence in the criminal justice system. New sentencing laws will see that the most serious offenders spend longer in custody to reflect better the severity of their crimes [Sentencing Bill]. Measures will be introduced to improve the justice system’s response to foreign national offenders [Foreign National Offenders Bill]. My Government will work to improve safety and security in prisons and to strengthen the rehabilitation of offenders. Proposals will be brought forward to ensure that victims receive the support they need and the justice they deserve. Laws will be introduced to ensure that the parole system recognises the pain to victims and their families caused by offenders refusing to disclose information relating to their crimes [Prisoners (Disclosure of Information About Victims) Bill].
A new duty will be placed on public sector bodies, ensuring they work together to address serious violence [Serious Violence Bill]. Police officers will be provided with the protections they need to keep the population safe [Police Protections Bill]. They will also be awarded the power to arrest individuals who are wanted by trusted international partners [Extradition (Provisional Arrest) Bill].
My Government will bring forward measures to protect individuals, families and their homes. Legislation will transform the approach of the justice system and other agencies to victims of domestic abuse [Domestic Abuse Bill], and minimise the impact of divorce, particularly on children [Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill]. My Ministers will continue to develop proposals to improve internet safety, and will bring forward laws to implement new building safety standards.
My Ministers will ensure that all young people have access to an excellent education, unlocking their full potential and preparing them for the world of work. My Government will take steps to make work fairer, introducing measures that will support those working hard [Employment (Allocation of Tips) Bill]. To help people plan for the future, measures will be brought forward to provide simpler oversight of pensions savings. To protect people’s savings for later life, new laws will provide greater powers to tackle irresponsible management of private pension schemes [Pension Schemes Bill].
To ensure that the benefits of a prospering economy reach every corner of the United Kingdom, my Ministers will bring forward a National Infrastructure Strategy. This will set out a long-term vision to improve the nation’s digital, transport and energy infrastructure. New legislation will help accelerate the delivery of fast, reliable and secure broadband networks to millions of homes [Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill]. An aviation bill will provide for the effective and efficient management of the United Kingdom’s airspace Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill. Proposals on railway reform will be brought forward.
A white paper will be published to set out my Government’s ambitions for unleashing regional potential in England, and to enable decisions that affect local people to be made at a local level.
My Government is committed to establishing the United Kingdom as a world-leader in scientific capability and space technology. Increased investment in science will be complemented by the development of a new funding agency, a more open visa system, and an ambitious national space strategy.
My Ministers remain committed to protecting and improving the environment for future generations. For the first time, environmental principles will be enshrined in law. Measures will be introduced to improve air and water quality, tackle plastic pollution and restore habitats so plants and wildlife can thrive. Legislation will also create new legally-binding environmental improvement targets. A new, world-leading independent regulator will be established in statute to scrutinise environmental policy and law, investigate complaints and take enforcement action [Environment Bill].
Proposals will also be brought forward to promote and protect the welfare of animals [Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill], including banning imports from trophy hunting.
The integrity and prosperity of the union that binds the four nations of the United Kingdom is of the utmost importance to my Government. My Ministers will bring forward measures to support citizens across all the nations of the United Kingdom.
My Government remains committed to working with all parties in Northern Ireland to support the return of devolved government and to address the legacy of the past.
My Government will take steps to protect the integrity of democracy and the electoral system in the United Kingdom.
My Government will continue to invest in our gallant Armed Forces. My Ministers will honour the Armed Forces Covenant and the NATO commitment to spend at least two per cent of national income on defence.
As the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, my Government will ensure that it continues to play a leading role in global affairs, defending its interests and promoting its values.
My Government will be at the forefront of efforts to solve the most complex international security issues. It will champion global free trade and work alongside international partners to solve the most pressing global challenges. It will prioritise tackling climate change and ensuring that all girls have access to twelve years of quality education.
Members of the House of Commons.
Estimates for the public services will be laid before you.
My Lords and Members of the House of Commons.
Other measures will be laid before you.
I pray that the blessing of Almighty God may rest upon your counsels.
This full moon seems to be bringing in a lot of changes as the old patterning is being released as I keep mentioning the great exposure of all things hidden in darkness will keep showing up in the light as lies get exposed and all souls choosing fear manifestations will live that reality as energy is energy and your soul is responsible for what your energy creates and you can't escape the experiences of your choices with the universal divine law of freewill.,
You reap what you sow and love or fear are your energy choices.. So be careful what you wish for and be mindful of your intentions to harm others as the tide turns on you with things you least expected turning up out of the blue..
Make love, compassion and kindness your freewill energy choice ..your soul will thank you for it.. Love and light xx
As Britain exits the EU Julie Bishop brought Australia into partnership with the EU so we will be under its dictatorial thumb as we are China and every other Globalist Marxist nation that has invested in our government and resources..

The slimy leftists should never have surrendered to the EU in the first place. many parasites in the pommy parliament are terrified at the idea of needing to actually perform for their horrendous salaries again.

Brexit? I will believe when I see it, and not before it is a done deal.
My guess is thet ALL the pollies do NOT want Brexit and will do all they can to stop it.

Hallelujah - God is in control.
It was never about the numbers.
Strength to the Queen and to her faithful servant, Boris.
Both raised up for a time such as this.

Lets just hope it is a no deal brexit instead of some watered down deal similar to what Theresa May brought to the table which will see the UK continue to be shackled to the EU.

QE2 sounds more Prime Ministerial than the lot of them. But BORIS will get his break with BREXIT.

Doesn't Her Majesty have a choice as to what she accepts for inclusion in her speech at the State Opening for Parliament? She knows Brexit is very contentious yet it is in that speech. Am I reading something into this that isn't there? I thought that she could never be anyone's puppet.

At 93 the Queen has more of a grasp on reality then any of her relatives - and she certainly is on the ball compared to Hanoi Jane who has really lost it (even though she is decades younger)
I just hope the Brits have enough sense to listen to her! (QE2 that is)

Great news! The reform of the justice and electoral systems sounds good. Should be done worldwide. Boris Johnson looked so proud.
Posted by: Denise | Tuesday, 15 October 2019 at 11:21 AM
You must be kidding. The Queen reads the speech prepared by the PM. She is required to be the puppet of the PM.
Posted by: Michael (Tango Delta Alpha) | Tuesday, 15 October 2019 at 11:52 AM
I'm not supposing The Queen is thinking about whether Brexit is contentious or not.
She's the monarch and Britain is her love and her God given responsibility.
She's saving her country from the ruin that is Europe.
She's a Patriot.

Note 📝 How The Controlled Media Media Never Speak Of Boris’s Popularity .👁.
Posted by: Wayne Shaft | Tuesday, 15 October 2019 at 03:03 PM
As far as I have experienced I reckon the Queen is very smart, and certainly
won't agree with anything which would harm her England, or any other of the British countries.
She knows what is happening in Europe, she is right on the ball!

The EU will collapse, just wait, wont be instant but it will happen, UK, then Germany, France especially Italy! Greece can 'ardly wait...Spain? The other EU/US vassal states with no backbone too eventually.

The word "condescending" comes to mind with your reply. Your first sentence was totally unnecessary.
