Queen Elizabeth II unveiled the coalition government's legislative programme in a speech delivered to Members of Parliament and Peers in The House of Lords. Proposed legislation is expected to be introduced on a 5p charge for plastic bags in England, funding of workplace pensions, new state-funded childcare subsidy and reforms to speed up infrastructure projects.

    Go here to check out Huff This!' video for "Last Christmas," which is a breathy, gothic and awesomely dark string-driven cover of the Wham! song. We were inspired to watch it not only because the New York dream-trash band's publicist made an awesome pitch and plea for us to watch, but because the group's name is so fucking cool. How could we not? We love twisted Christmas tunes and vids.

    Giving someone a raw, red, not-beating heart that looks like a hunk of beat is about as cool as it gets, no? It certainly fits the lyrics about "Last Christmas / I gave you my heart / And the very next day / You gave it away."



    Watch the video and tell us what you think in the comments below! Did you prefer the George Michael-lead version or are Huff This doing the song justice?
