Olly might technically be right, but everyone refers the one a christmas as the queens speech, and doesnt really care about the parliament one!
No matter what this poll says, or the comments say, it doesn't change the fact that OLLY IS FACTUALLY RIGHT. (The one at christmas is called the queen's christmas speech, it's quite simple...)
In Canada, we've always called the Queen's Christmas message just that. Usually, though, people just ask if you saw the Queen's message, or if you saw the Queen. The speech at the opening of Parliament is called the Speech from the Throne (or Throne Speech), which HM will deliver if she happens to be about. Otherwise, the Governor General reads it.
I believe in you, Olly.
Olly may be right, but everyone still calls the Christmas speech 'The Queen's Speech'... So he's wrong.
Whilst Ollie is actually correct I couldn't bring myself to agree with him over Helen so I took option number three and haven't looked back!
Olly is definitely right.
Queen's Speech = State opening of parliament.
Queen's Christmas Message = the one she does at christmas.
Even wikipedia (of all places!) manages to get this one correct.... sort it out, Helen & Martin!!
Olly is right. No-one seems to agree but he is right.
Olly is bang on. Fuck the doubters, Olly.
