Queen Elizabeth is Believed to be a Brexit Supporter
The Queen Elizabeth Second announced on Wednesday the Government’s program for the next 12 months during the State Opening of Parliament.
But the Prime Minister was immediately attacked for asking Her Majesty to unveil a threadbare package, as the Conservative leader fights for his political future ahead of the Brexit vote on June 23.
The government also appeared to put off at least one measure demanded by those pressing to leave the European Union – a Sovereignty Bill, which some Conservative lawmakers want in order to assert the supremacy of parliament over EU laws, Reuters reports.
The queen said her “ministers will uphold the sovereignty of parliament and the primacy of the house of commons (lower house of parliament)”.
She also listed some of the laws the government planned to introduce, including reforms of prisons, adoption rules and a commitment to build more homes, which some commentators said was aimed at securing Cameron’s “modernizing” legacy.
”My government will … deliver security for working people, to increase life chances for the most disadvantaged and to strengthen national defenses,” the queen, wearing her crown and ceremonial robes over a white dress, said at the state opening of parliament .
However as for the issue concerning Brexit, the queen is believed to be a Brexit supporter unlike the Prime Minister Cameron. It is noteworthy that apart from the Queen, in favor of the Brexit are also the former Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who is considered to be the unofficial leader of the “Brexit” camp, as well as the UKIP separatist party led by Nigel Farage, whose main theses include Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
According to the recent opinion polls, the campaign to keep Britain in the EU raced into an 18-point lead, Daily Mail writes.
It is the biggest lead recorded in the EU referendum campaign so far, but the same poll found that the public don’t believe David Cameron’s claims that a Brexit vote in June’s EU referendum would bring war and genocide back to Europe.
A majority of 58 per cent of voters believes leaving the EU would make ‘no difference’ to peace and security of the continent, an Ipsos MORI poll carried out over the weekend shows.
