Oh you know, same ol same ol.

£300 million over budget, 1 and half years late, on the brink of a public enquiry forced by claims of incompetence, designer dead, commissioning minister dead, remaining architects being kicked up the arse from here to eternity No-one prepared to go on record, political careers at risk. Usual suspect letters in the paper nearly every day.

Other than that what you can see looks very good.

If you've time Paul, why not come over to Glasgow . I'd be happy to show you around.... even buy you lunch. Now that's and offer you won't get in Edinburgh

Maybe also bring RSJ, don't think he gets up here that often?
