State Opening of a slow Parliament

Today sees the State Opening of Parliament (yesterday was the Commission Opening) meaning that the legislature is officially in session from today -- meaning, in Mark Twain's sense, that life, liberty and property are once again unsafe.

Colin James made the point on Breakfast News that this Parliament at least will be a slow one; that any new legislation will take some time to progress through the House. That at least is a blessing.
