A Queen's speech with fewer bills...

...is surely a good thing?  The news coverage seems to imply that it is a sign of strains in the government that it is 'only' proposing 19 new pieces of legislation - compared with 40+ in the halcyon days of Blair and Brown.

I would far rather have my government doing less, better, than a stream of showy legislative diorrhea designed to impress the media that the government is strong and in control.

Hopefully with a more considered legislative process MPs will have the time to get to grips with idiotic proposals such as internet snooping.
