Should Our Westminster Parliament Move and Where?

I have to say that I do strongly disagree with John Kampfner here. I think that some modern Parliamentary buildings look awful and why spend taxpayers money building a new building, if we need a five year absence, we need a building that is in London (and if not at least within a 120 mile radius, perhaps Oxford or Birmingham), is accessible to the public, is able to be successfully looked after by security, has a sense of British history, respects traditions and yet forward looking. That is what we need and I think that what we need is more important than the snobbery and inverted snobbery that takes place when we consider what we like and dislike about Parliament and it's location
