Queen's Speech: Prime Minister Boris Johnson hails 'radical' programme - BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
The Queen has opened a new session of the UK parliament for the second time in the space of two months. But this time there was less pageantry and far more politics following the Conservative victory in last week's election. Some 30 bills were announced in the speech advertised as an 'ambitious programme of domestic reform' as well as delivering Brexit.

Top of the list was the commitment to take the UK out of the EU by the end of January.

There'll be increases in the NHS budget in England -- and those will be enshrined in law.

There was confirmation of Conservative campaign pledge to impose longer sentences for violent offenders but also a major review of the criminal Justice system.

Huw Edwards presents tonight's BBC News at Ten with contributions from the BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg, health editor Hugh Pym, home editor Mark Easton, economics correspondent Dharshini David, special correspondent Ed Thomas and Scotland editor Sarah Smith.

Why are the BBC allowing comments now? They’re scared of being defunded by the state and want to gauge public opinion and bend their reporting to suit

If these claims like longer sentence period, change in the crime law and increase in NHS funding are realistic then there is still hope for a secured future for Britons.

I hope the government will finally have the balls to repeal the laws that are getting people arrested for comments on social media that “hurt people’s feelings”

The new government needs to address the media first as they are partly responsible for the chaos since the referendum.
