You couldn't make it up

I'm afraid that this is all too true:
THE beleaguered Holyrood project was at the centre of a new row last night, after a leading architectural writer claimed he had been banned from attending a press preview because he had been critical of the building in the past.
After politicians complained to the Presiding Officer,
Mr Reid told MSPs that the Scottish Parliament had merely been the "facilitators" of the event, which was organised jointly by Bovis and RMJM.
That's not the point. I would have no objection to the architects banning a journalist from a privately owned and financed property launch, but this is our parliament built with our money. Perhaps the whole Holyrood project really is simply part of the Edinburgh Festival. The Comedy Festival, that is.
