    The BBC ran a fascinating series a few years ago about the workings of the Palace of Westminster.  Among the people featured was the then Clerk of the Commons, Robert Rogers (now Lord Lisvane), who lamented that keeping the basic infrastructure going was a constant headache, especially the very real risk of fire breaking out in electrical wiring that is dangerously old.  Frankly, it might be no bad thing if the entire place burned down, provided nobody got hurt.  Perhaps then we would get a modern Commons chamber to match the Scottish Parliament or the U.S House of Representative or the European Parliament.
