NotesNews : The government last night combined radical rhetoric with distinctly cautious commitment in a Queen's Speech programme of reform for 1999 that is certain to be dominated by the historic battle between the elected Commons and the hereditary peers. Even the timetable for the Government's Lords campaign remained clouded in uncertainty as Tony Blair and William Hague exchanged acrimonious taunts over the irrelevance of each other's vision of "the people's priorities." [Michael White, The Guardian, 25th November 1998]
