Scottish Parliament likened to a "multi storey car park"
September 23 2009
Recent doubts as to the long term viability of the structure, with senior sources claiming that the building won't last a 100 years once the Scottish winters get to it, leads to questions as to how the building is experienced on a day to day basis by those based within.
Bill Aitken Conservative MSP for Glasgow has mixed feelings: “I am ambivalent about the building in that the chamber is magnificent and the garden lobby is a superb meeting space, the downside is there is far too much exposed concrete which gives the impression of a multi storey car park and nor is it the most user friendly of buildings, it takes ages to get anywhere.”
Resigned to making best use of what exists Aitken concludes: “I hope we move on from the awful difficulties of a few years ago and we all make good use of a very expensive building.”
