Scotland's Parliament, A lesson To Be Learned

The debacle over the Scottish parliament raises issues beyond Scotland.

The parliament building, which was recently opened at Holyrood, was budgeted to cost around £40M; instead the costs ballooned to over £400M, spectacular incompetence by anybody's standards.

This confirms what has long been known by people with half a brain, politicians and governments in the UK are incapable of managing construction and investment projects.

The same inept and incompetent politicians are now trying to convince the British public, and the International Olympic Committee, that the infrastructure necessary to hold the 2012 Olympic Games will be in place, on budget and on time.

Don't fall for it, they know not what they say!
