Queen’s Speech to be delayed by ‘a few days’ as Conservatives hammer out deal with DUP : The Telegraph

The Queen’s  Speech will be delayed by few days, prompting concerns that a deal between the Conservatives and the Democratic Unionist Party could be under threat.

Westminster sources confirmed that the Speech will be delayed by “a few days” to allow the two parties to agree the small print of a Confidence and Supply agreement.

One source said the delay was understandable given that the date of the Speech had been set before the result of the election was known.

The source said there was “nothing sinister” about the delay.

The Queen’s Speech – when the Monarch sets out the Government’s legislative programme – had been set for June 19.

Any delay until the middle of next week will mean that the Queen will have to miss one of her days at Royal Ascot.

Number 10 declined to confirm that the Speech will be delayed instead saying that there will be a statement from the Leader of the House of Commons, Andrea Leadsom.

  1. According to Nigel Farage on LBC Radio 2 right now…let’s be clear.

    Hard Brexit and soft Brexit were terms never actually used during the referendum.

    According to Nigel…Hard Brexit means we leave the single market, soft Brexit means we are staying in the single market and therefore we are De facto still in the European Union.
