Let’s have honesty about the costs of the Westminster retrofit


Also it would be good to have a well argued case for why: - This cramped building is still suitable. (Because it's facilities don't appear fit for the present let alone the future). - The chambers are adequate for the number of MP's & Lords. (They can't even seat everyone) - Chambers based on opposing factions are better than a radial design. - etc. Certainly its cost will be well above that quoted, the disruption will be prolonged, and the result - essentialy a restoration undertaken for the sake of nostalgia. Unlike the Olympics which benefited so greatly from it, there has been hardly any design debate about this project. Perhaps it would be better as a hotel?
