NotesNews: "It is not a Labour event, new or old. The clatter of the gilded royal coach through streets which have been cleared for fear of terrorism; the MPs crowding into the Lords like so many chattering, half-awed schoolchildren in Santa's grotto; the great national symbols brought out for public use - the robes, the crown, and all the aristocratic flunkeys and early Victorian cavalry uniforms let out for the day. The only bit of the ritual that makes sense to many of us is the traditional sight of Dennis Skinner ostentatiously refusing to leave the Commons benches, having delivered, as he did yesterday, a loud witticism to puncture the pomposity. (This time he suggested the doors of the Commons be locked before MPs had trooped out.)
The speech itself, flatly written and - sorry Ma'am - flatly delivered, is a laundry list of legislation which I don't suppose swings a single vote in the country. ..." The Guardian
