Once again our feudal throwback Elizabeth Windsor tottered into the guilded surrounds of the Lords to reveal to us mere mortals what the latter-day Marie Antionettes of the ruling Con-Dem regime have in store for us.
And, just like the out-of-touch French aristocrat - a woman whose sentiments were echoed by the words of equally detached ex-premier Margaret Thatcher - it seems that David Cameron and his loyal hound Clegg are not for turning.
After being smashed at the polls and heading a coalition government so dispiriting in its vision that only one in three of the electorate could face voting, with only a third of those - just one in 10 voters - plumping for the Tories, these people just won't take the hint.
They just keep on serving up those pieces of rotten cake.
Social proposals contained in the Children and Families Bill will undoubtedly change the lives of some people who face difficult home situations and the children who are often affected most of all.
So, too, on the surface would a Care and Support Bill, although coming from the Con-Dems its aim of "modernising" the provision of services to the silent, struggling thousands up and down the land left to look after loved ones by themselves is bound to provide a big handout to private-sector providers too.
This bizarre love affair with the private sector is reflected too in a water Bill that promieses an increased "choice" of equally greedy private suppliers at a time when every single one is fleecing each of us for hundreds of pounds while precious water leeches from a crumbling system.
The coalition's toffee-nosed disgust at the real wealth creators - us - is reflected in a pensions Bill to make the majority of us mere plebs work longer for less.
Their paranoia that the endlessly pounding jackboot crushing our society in an orgy of cuts and privatisation will result in a vicious backlash, as it undoubtedly will, is reflected in a spying Bill to allow the state security apparatus unparalleled access to monitor us. Access which, knowing history, will hunt trade unionists and other activists far more than it will prevent terrorism, as is claimed.
Our Antoinettes' hatred for our public services and the people who work to provide them is shown in a public-sector pensions Bill which preserves a special kick of the Tory jackboot for Britain's hard-working, endlessly maligned state employees. After all, how can someone who decides to work for the benefit others rather than themselves be worthy of reward?
This crooked cabal of thinly veiled cheerleaders for capital must be sent packing.
