Queen's speech


New laws supposed to equip the UK for the modern world will be announced today. How do we know this?

Because, like almost every year in the last 500, a man dressed in black tights will summon people called the “commons” to go to a room full of men in wigs and listen to the head of an ancient monarchy tell us so.

Countries that their regimes or governments have been built on tradions and history survive in this turbulant world, because of their deep insight and understanding of the relationship between people and thier leaders. Some tradions may be taken as nonsence at face value, but that nonsence is there to remind us why, how and at what cost those values have been achieved.
