Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson says her party will vote against the Queen's Speech because it's a "charade" which will make the country poorer.
Speaking before the event in Parliament, Ms Swinson said the Brexit negotiations were looking a mess because the government hadn't done sufficient preparatory work.
"The prime minister isn't doing his job properly," she says. "Instead we've got this charade of a Queen's Speech which is going to have a long list of promises that the prime minister can't possibly deliver because the path he is set to go down is one that will make us so much poorer as a country.
"The different estimates out there suggest that what he is proposing could be as bad as the financial crash of 2008 in terms of shrinking our economy."
