The day emperor and empress came.
Usually the curtain is closed.
Sorry, but it's like it looks most of the time.
The Dining Hall was based on the dining hall at Christ Church College Oxford, but apparently most of the dining hall scenes were shot on a sound stage instead
House of Representatives
Nothing unusual. Just one deputy of Verkhovna Rada grabs by the balls our prime minister and tried to drag him from the pulpit. Before that, he had given him the flowers. By the way, it's our parliamentary traditions, you can't wholly comprehend this.
And that is our parliament in the rare occasion when there is no fighting.
Fuck you, Hungary, for having such a beautiful parliament building.
Ok, now it's time for a riddle. Can you guess which is a slovak parliament and which is a rotting socialist-realist style GP building?
when I think that MPs and lords have been sitting in that building for hundreds of years guiding the country it send shivers down my spine to think of the history behind it all
My State's legislature looks pretty comfy.
Yeah it's ugly as fuck but then again I'm glad they didn't spend my tax money on something ridiculous
Up until 1992 the House of Representatives was seated in this room, which was originally a ballroom and then converted it into seating our first House of Representatives in the early 19th century. At first there were only 50 members, but this quickly grow to 150 members and the room was just way too small for that. Each bench had to seat 3 people, kek

thanks pham, you should come and visit sometime, it's absolutely gorgeous now that the refurbishment works that have been going on for two decades have finally been completed last year
Damn... I envy England's capacity to preserve history. Here, a country older than most countries in Europe, self hating morons managed, in the last 200 or so years, to successfully destroy most of our heritage and turn this country into a mere shadow of what it once was, for "progress". Fuck that.
What does that have to do with the parliament? Is stuff decided there?
>to successfully destroy most of our heritage and turn this country into a mere shadow of what it once was, for "progress".
>overwhelmingly win the war
>still lose colonies
>What does that have to do with the parliament? Is stuff decided there?
It's part of Parliament
It used to be the location of law courts, today it's just used for important occasions and ceremonies
Do you know about how we lost the colonies? The provisional government after the 1974 coup literally gave control of the territories to revolutionary groups in Africa.
>but how about all the portuguese living there?
They lost all their property, were hunted down by niggers, sacked and killed. The ones that managed to escape started their lives in other places, and some of them came to continental Portugal (more than half million) as refugees...
And the awful decolonization process is just the tip of the iceberg that is the terrible management this country has had.
Yes, I'm familiar with the death of Salazar and the Carnation Revolution which couped his successor.
Pisses me off reading about it. Goa infuriates me though.
>They lost all their property, were hunted down by niggers, sacked and killed.
Happened all throughout africa during decolonization. Plus the black africans who supported portugal were pretty much just executed.

Y-You'll be fine. You're not full of muslims like the rest of Europe.
