Piers Gough slams demolition of Richmond House to create Parliament’s new home


I absolutely agree with Piers Gough. The arrogance and double-standards of this decision are staggering! Where are the voices of MPs who should be opposing it? Quite apart from the reasons stated in the article, there is the sustainability argument. Any assessment of the embodied energy and environmental impact of a) demolishing, b) rebuilding c) remodelling once the temporary use of the new building is over, would surely demonstrate that the use of Richmond House by a Government serious about climate change is unethical and unacceptable.
