After 300 years, finally a new parliament for Scotland..

It’s been a long time coming, but today the new Parliament buildings in Edinburgh have been officially opened, with some signs that the ongiong controversy over building costs may be put to one side after dominating the news agenda over Scottish devolution for the last four or five years. It’s actually been open for business about a month.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
