The Queen’s speech: the only part of it that sparkled was her jewellery.

Parliament has just undergone its most underwhelming State Opening – possibly ever – with a speech delivered by a gimlet-eyed Queen who sounded like she didn’t believe a word she was saying.

And what she said was vague beyond expression.

Here’s the first bit, about Brexit:

(If you can’t see the video, it’s on Twitter here.)

And here’s the rest of it:

It was a speech that will have satisfied very few people apart from Boris Johnson’s sycophants.

It contained nothing on alleviating poverty, nothing on productivity, nothing on the causes of crime.

Nothing for the WASPI women.

Poor measures on education.

Climate change was included at the end, as an afterthought.

And none of it is likely to be enacted in any case.

It was a stunt by Boris Johnson to distract from his Brexit bungling, that has already been rightly described as disrespectful of the Queen.

And she knew it.
