A £3.5bn refurbishment is a waste of money and a wasted opportunity to re-engage the rest of the UK.
A new, ultra green, state of the art, secure, 2m sq ft Parliament in Manchester, Birmingham or Liverpool would only cost £800m - £1bn.
- It would save many millions a year in maintenance a running costs.
- HS2 will prove quick access back to London.
In one stroke it would remove the North/South divide and start to spread wealth.
Scotland and Wales may start to feel more enfranchised and better represented.
London does not need Government to flourish. Consider New York, Shanghai, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Sydney, Toronto and Milan. All great financial centres non of which have the turbo charged commercial advantage of being home to the seat of power.
If the London centric government are not prepared to share the wealth they will continue to feed the growing resentment that made Brexit and fuels the growth of populist parties.
- A derelict Battersea Power Station sold for £1.4bn. Westminster could be sold for 3 times this and turned into a major tourist attraction with extraordinary galleries, museums, 6* hotels, boutique retail and outstanding restaurants.
