A Wordle of the Queen's Speech

The text of the Queen's speech as a wordle - and how it compares to 1997

We were curious to see if the Queen's speech written by David Cameron and Nick Clegg is all that different to one written by Tony Blair after his 1997 victory. There's a great archive of Queen's speeches on the Parliament website if you want to repeat the exercise.

And the answer is: not that much by this measure. We've had to cheat a bit by removing the word "government" and "introduced". Apart from that, you can see the word "deficit" appears - as does "nuclear". "European" has gone however.
