Queen’s Speech SCRAPPED to help Brexit and strengthen Theresa May’s position

18 Jun

The Government has taken the rare step of doubling the length of a normal parliamentary session from one year to two, meaning there will be no State Opening of Parliament next year. 

The move, which the Prime Minister’s aides insist is to allow for more scrutiny of Brexit legislation, removes one of the biggest risks of a leadership challenge. 

If a prime minister cannot pass a ’s Speech or budget through Parliament, then they are automatically subject to a vote of no confidence, which could trigger a general election.
