Britain is ready with a fresh slate and a set post-pandemic agenda.
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth will on Tuesday present the Prime Minister’s post-pandemic agenda. The speech she would deliver has been written by the government that will set out the new laws that ministers intend to pass in the coming year.
The 95-year-old monarch will open the grand ‘State Opening of Parliament’, a heavily choreographed and costumed ceremony, which would have face masks, social distancing, and fewer guests.
As Boris Johnson plans Britain’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the speech will set out his policymaking priorities and will seek to fulfil the promises he made to voters in 2019 on creating new opportunities for left-behind regions and communities.
Britain’s vaccination programme far ahead of most international peers and the spread of the virus contained at very low levels, Johnson is hoping to revive his so-called ‘levelling up’ narrative.
