The Sunday Time reports that : The Houses of Parliament building could close for up to five years while essential repairs are carried out.... Plumbing and electrics need to be refurbished and the building is purged of asbestos. This would include leaving the Palace of Westminster for good.

Is it too much to hope that we don't see any MP's for 5 years too.

What worries me is that, if Mark's bulletin is to be believed, Parliament is to leave the Palace of Westminster forever. Where will the nation's business be debated and managed? Will the palace of Westminster be converted into a Central London IKEA or - worse still - the biggest McDonald's in the world? We need to know these things!
