Today’s public appearance comes on the eve of this year’s Queen Speech which, according to the tabloid press over the weekend, has been scrapped and rewritten by Mr Cameron in the days following Thursday’s night at the polls.
After this morning’s Cabinet meeting, Cameron and Clegg will head to a factory in Essex, in order to show their commitment to industry and getting people jobs.
Sources say that the tone of today’s speech will be far more serious and less jokey than the one given in the Number 10 rose garden the day after the Con-Lib coalition assumed power.
The Queen’s Speech has renewed tensions between the coalition partners, with traditionalist Tories calling for more purely Conservative policies.
Despite Cameron and Clegg’s expected words of unity, Labour have taken advantage of the situation, and have said that both parties have lost public trust, and that their economic policies have pushed Britain back into recession.The opposition have also called for the Queen’s Speech to include help the most vulnerable in societies, and help families with the cost of fuel and train fares.
