If I See The Houses Of Parliament Once More.... [May. 31st, 2013|10:33 am]

Bloody Palace of Westminster!

Not content with featuring as the backdrop to every story about British politics in every news programme ever filmed- it managed - last night- to bag itself a starring role in a documentary about Henry VII, even though it wasn't built until nearly 400 years after his reign.

God, but I'm sick of the sight of it!

Also pretty much compulsory to have the presenters walking over London Bridge, to make the point that there are Lots of People and They All Look Like Tudors / Vikings / Beaker People etc. etc.

Westminster Abbey is another building that gets far too much airtime. Film makers fixate on the west towers, presumably under the impression that they're medieval- which they're not.
