Our new Parliament building continues to make the headlines. After being completed 4 years late and roughly £400 million over budget, the parliamentarians (MSPs) have had to vacate the debating chamber because one of the roof beams came loose and swung down, dangerously close to a Conservative MSP - not close enough some might say! Locals are divided as what they think of the buidling. It certainly stands out, and I'll post pictures of what it's like from the outside, but the inside is really something else. This is the main debating chamber - truly a spectacular working environment. As I was driving home through the Park and past the parliament, I could smell the first cut grass of the season, and coupled with it being a balmy 10°C, spring is in the air!!
