Laatste troonrede voor verkiezingen

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip leave the Houses of Parliament after the annual State Opening of Parliament in London, on November 18, 2009. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown unveiled a crackdown on the banking industry Wednesday as part of a voter-friendly agenda designed to boost its chances at elections barely six months away. In a traditional Queen's Speech detailing its final legislative plans before ballots due by June, the government also put boosting growth and jobs as its top priority as Britain emerges from the global slowdown.
