Queen Elizabeth’s Speech and David Cameron’s Politics

Queen Elizabeth II will deliver a speech in the Westminster Abbey today, in which she will present the newly-elected Conservative Party’s legislative agenda.

The Tories, Cameron’s political party retains the reputation of being out of touch with the country’s political needs, with its decisions often judged as “heartless,” according to the British weekly publication The Economist.

Devolving power to provincial cities, capping income tax and allocating extra resources to health care are among the bills to be discussed by the Parliament. However, the Brexit, or the UK’s referendum on leaving the Eurozone, the abolition of human rights legislation and curbing of the immigrant flow to the country represent the main conflicting themes of the British politics today.

The queen’s speech holds a function of balancing David Cameron’s aspirations for gaining the political center-ground.
