Clause crowing misses the point of quality


What a lot of crowing over your role in saving Gummer's charter for allowing the very rich to build ostentatious homes in the countryside (nicely satirised by Hellman) while the rest of us are crammed into brownfield envelopes.

The whole thing is predicated on these houses being of exceptionally high quality. If the cardboard boxes you illustrate on page 5 (AJ 12.8.04) are examples of 'the very best' to 'enhance the environment', then I'm Robert Adam.
