Responding to the Coalition

The Queen's Speech today provided the new government with a showcase of many of the measures they had already announced.  Opposing it is difficult for Labour because the government is still in its honeymoon phase.  Getting our message across and having our message engaged with by the media will be difficult.  This period could last for a while.  However it is important for Labour to aggressively oppose where appropriate.  In particular we need to expose the fault lines and lack of principles in this Compromise Government.  Meanwhile we need to always sustain our position as a government in waiting.
