The Queen’s speeches conservative agenda?

I read a BBC news article this morning about Labour’s criticisms that the Queen’s speech this week contained support for the Conservatives party. It contained the phrases ‘long-term plan’ and ‘long-term economic plan’, which are Conservative Party slogans.

The opening line of the speech was, “My government’s legislative programme will continue to deliver on its long-term plan to build a stronger economy and a fairer society.”

Is ‘long-term plan’ so tied to a conservative message it can’t be used neutrally? What other synonyms could have been used if they wanted to keep the same opening statement?
