Queen's Speech - What Becomes Law

I do think the Tory and Lib Dem criticisms are a little pathetic really. No actual attack on the contents itself, save that such policies would be difficult to become law by 2010. In which case, why have a Queen's Speech at all?
The real reason is that a lot of the policies already mentioned are ones which they privately agree with in principle or in practice and that, sadly, they haven't the foresight to look beyond yah-boo politics

How can the government make laws such that the financial deficit has to be sufficiently recovered and certain child poverty levels are achieved? All well and good sentiments but how are government going to prosecute themselves if the targets arn't met?!
