The Cost of Democracy.

If we cast our minds back to the building of our National Assembly and if it came to it also the Scottish Parliament we will recall the numerous cynical letter writers decrying the cost of Welsh and Scottish democracy saying the money would be better spent on health and education.

Where are these cynical letter writers now that it has been decided that the Houses of Parliament need a refurbishment at a cost of £3 billion! This is a phenomenal figure compared to the £70 million it cost to build the National Assembly and the £414 million to build the Scottish Parliament; in fact a refurbishment will cost 6 times the building costs of the Senedd and the Scottish Parliament put together and the silence is deafening!

Where is the outcry people?
