Why the Observer chose to lambast the new mp's building at Westminster, on the grounds that the cladding is expensive, is hard to understand - this story has appeared twice in the Sunday Times in recent memory. Just as baffling is why it is always someone from Davis Langdon & Everest who puts the boot in every time this story re-emerges. Could they be jealous about not being the qs consultant on the project? Perhaps readers would like to send in examples of dl&e projects which could have been built more cheaply. Perhaps the Observer could ask itself why its photographers' cameras are much more expensive than its readers'.
