State Opening of Parliament 2015

HM The Queen opened Parliament today in London with a Speech from the Throne written by the newly elected all-Conservative government.  From the official United Kingdom Parliament YouTube channel:
The State Opening of Parliament took place on Wednesday 27 May 2015. State Opening marks the formal start of the new 2015-16 parliamentary session. The primary purpose of this colourful state occasion is to set out the Government's legislative agenda in the Queen's Speech.
