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


Given that there seem to be several questions looming over the basic form of our parliament - the possible abandonment of crude and divisive 'first past the post' democracy for proportional representation (or maybe even something akin to the German system), and the questions of whether Scotland will 'walk' and of how the government of Wales and Northern Ireland might evolve - there's the obvious risk of throwing large quantities of increasingly scarce public funds at something that's not going to be fit for purpose. Surely the accommodation of central government functions now demands a high degree of flexibility.
