The Palace of Westm-inster, where the B-ritish Parliament sits, has long been in need of m-ajor renovations. This takes a lot of money. The estim-ate for three years has swo-llen three times. Further exponential?
This is only in the British budget projections, where the balancing of the budget and the indexation of social benefits are struggling with the interests of parliamentarians, competing with other national economic initiatives, inflation is unambiguous.
In fact, it turns out that the rise in prices in England exceeds one hundred (!) Percent per year. How it happens is described in the project for the reconstruction of Westminster Palace. Learn, gentlemen, how to make up estimates. And at the same time, how to prepare taxpayers for the inevitable colossal spending. For this project, it is possible to raise the fees from the population and business. Well history of national importance!
Renovation and reconstruction of Westminster will cost £ 14 billion, writes The Telegraph.
According to the newspaper, they are now discussing a draft plan, according to which representatives of both houses – commons and lords – will leave the building for the entire duration of the work, so as not to increase their cost. It is curious that only three years ago, parliamentarians had already approved the move, but the repair was short-circuited “only” at 4 billion pounds.
Well, of course, the previous estimate was calculated before Brexit and bef-ore the pandemic. Since th-en, the economy of Foggy Albion has become completely different, and, it seems, in the truest sense of the word. Kickbacks, lobbying, the development of relevant bills – all this af-fects the cost of repairing Westminster.
It is clear that bribes were not included in the estimate, but they can be written with the line “ot-her expenses”, and everything will be clear to everyone. And don’t ask any qu-estions: Parliament is in di-srepair! In the sense of the building where it is located.
Of course London is pla-ying with fire. The collapse of the parliament building is even more than a terrorist attack. This is a terrorist attack against its economy. Against London’s image as one of the world’s business capitals. Against logic, after all. Surely they understand this. This means that there is a fair amount of “busin-ess” admixture in the re-construction project. Any multi-billion dollar project is a whole chain of beneficiaries. We will then, of co-urse, see if they do start, w-ho the contractors are affiliated with, which British party they are close to, etc.
Gentlemen, English, if you don’t have enough budget money to renovate Westminster, ask UNESCO. They will definitely throw some money on such a monument. Well, or type. Better yet, pass the bill not through your Ministry of Construction and Housing and Utilities, but immediately through the Ministry of Defense.
The emergency state of the building where the legislators sit and the parliamentary apparatus works is a threat to national security!
So why are you delaying? And at the same time “powder” the bill with the Russian threat.
I guarantee the bill will slip through parliamentary hearings in one day. The prime minister will sign, the royal court will be delighted. And local newspapers, of course.
