Obviously, I can't get all of them on here, but I'll post photos of 16 national parliaments around the western world, and have a playoff system. IE, A vs. b, C vs. D, winner A/B vs. winner C/D.

First parliament with 5 votes will win; votes will be posts in this thread. Try not to be too political about it, just go on the buildings own merits.

Let's start with Australia vs. Canada:

Australian Parliament House (also known as the worls'd biggest Grassy Knoll):

I've actually rolled down the slope on the left hand side Smiley

Canadian Parliament:


Sorry the Aussie one is so big, it's the only good one I could find Smiley

Other 'matches' will be:

2: Sweden vs. New Zealand
3: UK vs. Italy
4: Russia vs. France
5: USA vs. Netherlands
6: Japan vs. Germany
7: too be nominated vs. Switzerland
8: too be nominated vs. too be nominated

Here's a picture from the back of the Canadian one, so you can see its totally awesome location above the Ottawa River.

The Hungarian parliament will go against the Swiss parliament in the seventh match.

Onto match #2: Sweden vs. New Zealand

Sweden:


New Zealand (The Beehive):

The only reason it gets in here is because of the building off to the left. Not really my style, but feel free to vote for it Wink

I vote for Sweden.

New Zealand's is so very New Zealandish Smiley

Dying palm trees out the front, not an ounce of security in sight, an a beehive Smiley

I voted for New Zealand mainly for the beehive, as for some reason I like it.

Sweden - The picture doesn't do it justice. It's beautifully placed, I think. (BTW, The Danish Diet is ugly)

Sweden.  Mainly because Hugh seems to find tiny pictures of buildings, unless they are in his country or very, very near it.
