Key quote:

“In conjunction with regionalising and localising power, our democracy would be more inclusive by moving the seat of national government away from London.

“My own choice for a new location would be Bristol, a dynamic, innovative city which was also European Green Capital last year. Where better to establish a slimmed down, energy efficient, carbon neutral parliamentary building? A Passivhaus design might just encourage MPs and peers to be a bit more passive and respectful in the way they address and relate to one another too.”
