Members of Parliament appear to have finally bitten the bullet and decided to move forward with plans to leave the Houses of Parliament for a period so that they can be properly refurbished. The buildings are in a disgraceful state and at risk of being destroyed by fire or suffering another type of catastrophic event (don’t ask about the sewage pumps!).
Of course, in Chipping Bonhunt we bit the bullet a few years ago and took urgently needed action to refurbish our Town Hall after years of prevarication and neglect. Perhaps the MPs were inspired by our example. Where Chipping Bonhunt leads, the Members of Parliament follow!
