Slat Spat.

Mr Smith is amazed at just how much day to day routine maintenance the new Holyrood building is requiring so shortly after its opening. It might be costing very much individually, but it is all adding up, with the Scottish taxpayer picking up the tab.

"SCOTTISH Parliament bosses are spending £20,000 to remove and treat dozens of wooden slats from the outside of the Holyrood building. Officials said after four years exposed to the elements, the laminated oak "louvres" needed a fresh coat of resin to help prolong their life.A cherry-picker was hired to take down the slats from the glass corridor which MSPs use to get to the debating chamber."
