Staying so close to the Scottish Parliament complex we felt we had to take a tour of the buildings before catching our train home.

Not only is the building beautiful, but it was fascinating to gain an insight into the workings of the devolved Government. Here the clumsy mechanics of Westminster seemed to be replaced by well thought out systems and structures, designed to make the governing process transparent and accessible. Even the building itself joined the theme, providing direct access from the street to the corridors of power.

Clearly when starting from a blank sheet of paper anything is possible and Westminster doesn't have such luxury but for a moment it was thrilling to imagine what might happen if it did.
