The people’s Parliament

This morning, I popped into the National Assembly, looking for a representative of the NCP that would be happy to shoot the breeze with me about Darfur (it seems that they are few and far between).

This was the first time I had visited the Assembly, and I was immediately taken back by its austere interior. Compared to the plushness of the many other Parliaments that I have visited, this was a refreshing change. The architecture was very ‘Seventies’ and somehow reminded me of the way that the parliament buildings of communist Russia should have looked. Though, of course, we all know now that the Stalinists were the most ostentatious of the lot.
