Scottish Parliament building may not be finished on time ...

... for its scheduled opening in eight days time. No surprise there. I haven't been down to Edinburgh myself lately, but this report makes it sound as if a project which is already three years late and GBP390 million over-budget, will not be able to obtain the crucial 'occupation certificate', without which it will be impossible for staff to be moved into the building. The whole situation would be laughable if it weren't so downright shoddy and outrageous.
