Notations On Our World (Special Edition): On The Queen's Speech in the UK & A "Hot" Summer

Last year's Queen's Speech

The World Awaits the Queen's Speech in the United Kingdom as the UK Governments' Legislative Program will be announced.    It will be broadcast live and will be available here via our "Sky News" Grid".     It is quite a regal affairs that is always fascinating to watch.    Based on reporting we've seen, there is no "Carriage", no "Crown"--as there is no agreement with the Democratic Union Party of Northern Ireland.   It must also be noted that this Parliament is slated to "sit" for Two years as there will be no Queen's Speech in 2018 as the UK sorts out challenges with Brexit--as major aspects of the Conservative Manifesto have been dropped. 

It also appears that it is quite hot in London with forecast as high as 34 Degrees Celsius in some years.   We here in in our hometown of Laguna Niguel have had a major heatwave as well with a heat advisory through 9:00 PM PST.
