(Graham Lees) #8

Perhaps it now dawns on him what Admin means pmsl


(Robert Hodge) #9

I think John Bercow does a very good job in extremely difficult circumstances.


(Graham Lees) #10

I wonder if Westminster Council have granted the Speaker a Child Minding licence?


(Mark Robbins) #11

He’d need a fxxxxng great big naughty step


(Graham Lees) #12

Isn’t there one leading down into Westminster Hall?


(David Martin) #13

Westminster Hall. One of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen.

Versailles does it for me…

We were extremly lucky to have a security guard at Versailles take us out of the queue and escort us through a special entrance for the disabled, there we were shown into a concealed lift and taken to the Hall of Mirrors, we were the first there, just us and the room guardians, a magical moment before the hordes arrived:-)

I have to say though that I prefer Fontainebleau, have visited it a few times and find it more ‘familial’. Took mum there once too, that time I was allowed to drive through the courtyard and deposit her outside the doors. I was then shown to special parking.

We brought our daughter touring, when she was a teenager… these beautiful buildings delighted us… :hugs:

(and yes, we do love Hampton Court et al… )


(Graham Lees) #17

Aren’t many of the English Heritage buildings actually modelled on Versailles?


(David Martin) #18

It’s a totally different kind of beauty. Versailles, Fontainebleau, Compiegne and other Royal Palaces like that or places like Schloss Neuschwanstein are over the top in their splendour whereas Westminster Hall is just beautifully old and simple. I once had a job interview that was held at Eltham Palace and was fortunate enough to be given a tour while I was there, its medieval hall has the same feel.

No idea Graham… that was just meaning to say that UK has some lovely buildings as well… as do so many other countries too… :hugs:

HCourt is a favourite from my own youth… when France was simply somewhere… a long way away… where Grandma disappeared to from time to time…

Ightam moat, Hever castle, Chiddingstone, Leeds Castle, Canterbury, Tunbridge Wells and many other wonderful places in the south that I visited in my youth.
Saw lots more when I lived in the North too and Scotland !
I had membership of the National Trust too , it’s a pity that there isn’t a scheme like it here!
