At the present rate, the Queen's Speech will have to be the King's Speech. And that King will be George VII.
Remember when they said that if Jeremy Corbyn became Prime Minister, then Gerry Adams would be in Downing Street, telling him what to do?
Well, Gerry Adams was in Downing Street this afternoon, telling the Prime Minister what to do.
Nice of him to slum it, I suppose. Sinn Féin royalty normally prefer British royalty to mere politicians, and British royalty cheerfully return the compliment.
At the same time, Corbyn was at Grenfell Tower, meeting the survivors whom Theresa May had refused to meet.
Oh, and Conservative Campaign Headquarters is letting it be known that it is preparing for a second General Election.
