Cameron says Palace of Westminster looks “half like a school”

Political Scrapbook:

With the first episode of the BBC’s four-part documentary Inside The Commons broadcast last night, David Cameron was interviewed claiming that the Houses of Parliament — a royal palace and UNESCO world heritage site — look “half like a school”.

After all, doesn’t everyone attend schools with chapels that, like the Palace of Westminster, are a noted examples of Perpendicular Gothic architecture?

At a stroke, we understand why some new MPs feel quite at home in the Commons and some do not.
