Roma – British Premier Boris johnsonOn the strength of the recent success in the elections, he sought to capitalize on his electoral strength by outlining a legislative program aimed at strengthening the economy after the epidemic and preventing tensions that threaten the unity of the country. The package, consisting of approximately 30 bills, was presented by Queen Elizabeth II Who opened the new parliamentary session by making the customary annual speech in the House of Lords.

The ceremony, which was held in a scale-down format due to the epidemic, was the Queen’s first major public event since the funeral of her husband Prince Philip last month. A single throne was placed under the golden canopy. In the past there were two, one for the queen and one for the consort. “My government’s priority” is to “ensure that there is a national recovery from the epidemic that makes Britain stronger, healthier and more prosperous than before”The queen told the House of Lords.

Elizabeth, who was not wearing a mask, was accompanied to the Chamber by her son Prince Charles. He delivered the speech slowly and in front of a small and up-front audience, who first tested Kovid.

Johnson and his cabinet put together a list of proposals after a year of lockdowns and sanctions that triggered Britain’s deepest economic recession in three centuries. The government is facing renewed demands for independence from Scotland and the turmoil in Northern Ireland has sparked the post-Brexit trade agreement between London and Brussels.

Prior to Elizabeth’s speech, Johnson announced plans to provide lifelong learning access to everyone to ensure the necessary skills needed by employers. The government also plans to renew planning laws to expedite the construction of new homes. “These new laws are the fuel we need to level this country and ensure equal opportunities for all”Johnson said in a statement released before the speech, “We know that the right skills and training are the way to better and well-paid jobs”. The Labor Party has challenged the Conservatives to be told that the executive should come up with a plan to create jobs.

Johnson, later speaking to the House of Commons, also promised to get the government investigated to deal with the epidemic. A hypothesis he initially rejected several times.(Lapse / AP)
