Making friends and influencing people – 11.10.07

  • Comment

The London Evening Standard doesn’t appear that keen to make friends with its ‘London’s 1,000 Most Influential People’ supplement which appeared earlier this week. Apart from the disgraceful omission of Astragal (an administrative error we are assured) there is the bizarre biog of Astragal’s old mucker Paul Finch, AR editor and former CABE deputy chair. Finch is listed alongside such luminaries as Norman Foster, Ken Livingstone and Zaha Hadid in the property section of the supplement, but the editors obviously had reservations about whether he belonged in such glitzy company. ‘Aside from the twinkle in his eye’, the article reads ‘[Finch] looks more like a rough sleeper than a design guru’.
