Jackie Ashley examines claims that the Queen's Speech was more about scoring political points than ensuring good government. She asks if the appointment of an EU President has lived up to expectations; and she hears about the help being offered to people who wish to stand as INDEPENDENT candidates in the general election. There are also reflections to mark the 20th anniversary of the arrival of the television cameras in the House of Commons.
