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.
