Let's face it. The best bit of the Queen's Speech is usually Dennis Skinner's heckle. And this year's gag was pretty good. "Royal Mail for sale, Queens head privatised," the Labour MP quipped as MPs were summoned from the Commons.

Previous jokes include "Jubilee year, double dip recession, what a start" and "have you got Helen Mirren on standby?"
