Brexit: 2018 Queen's Speech cancelled by government

There will be no Queen's Speech next year to give MPs more time to deal with Brexit laws, the government says.

Leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom said the next parliamentary session was being doubled in length to two years.

The unusual move would allow MPs to scrutinise "substantial amounts of legislation", she said.

Outrageous! :mad

When can we expect some right-thinking men of the civil service, military and industry to step in and restore order with a National Salvation Government for the duration of the crisis?

When not declare the next parliament to last 100 years or until May dies?

It is outrageous.

Simple enough constitutionally, particularly now the EU won't be meddling in UK parliamentary sovereignty.
