Holyrood building costs hit GBP 421 million - and counting

Whilst the Fraser Inquiry into this fiasco continues, the clock is still ticking on the costs of building the new Scottish Parliament building at Holyrood, an increase of GBP 20 million since the last estimate was published in September, at which time we now learn that the real estimated cost even then was GBP 411 million! Our parliamentary representatives who are supposed to be overseeing this project never thought to tell us, the paying public, about this - this is no surprise, unfortunately.
