The Mother of Parliaments Reopens

A few days after the British parliamentary election - with its rather surprising and unprecedented (and undoubtedly historic) outcomes - I am in London and strolling past the Houses of Parliament.

This also happens to be the same day that the MPs are famously turning up for the first day of the new session..

On the opposite side of the road from the House, the temporary TV studios that the BBC and other media have been using are being rapidly dismantled.

There are a few film crews still hanging around on the grass but the new and re-elected all seem to be shut away inside.


A couple of little studios tucked away besides Westminster Abbey

The Big BBC Studio (you can't see in through the glass)

The same from behind - showing how it fits up against the Henry Moore sculpture

Within - a new parliament is assembling
