Politics as Usual: The Throne Speech

Greg Weston calls this the drone from the throne in today's Sun.

Obviously, for conservatives out there this is an exciting time for us, if for no other reason that it has been a little while since the Conservatives have written a federal throne speech.

Greg's point is that this will be boring because the points are already known: 5 priorities - 5 promises - let's make it happen.

Given past campaigns where the political parties promised everything to everyone, the Throne Speech was the first indication of which of those promises would actually be kept. The real meat is in the budget.

I remain cautiously optimistic that the direction of government will change for the better today, despite my earlier misgivings.

In the meantime, enjoy the show...
