Five of the UK's largest property owners are coming together to procure advanced telecoms services and deliver these in their buildings. The first steps look only mildly interesting - the combined group of companies will have more purchasing power than each has separately in an area dominated by telecoms multinationals. Assuming, that is, that they can stay together. The five new commercial bedfellows are British Land, Canary Wharf, Legal & General, Norwich Union and Prudential.

I am sitting on a train just north of Doncaster going nowhere. The new power unit has managed to collect debris from an overhead gantry as well as some overhead power cables. No one knows how long we will be sitting here. All this as the Strategic Rail Authority is saying that there will be less money available to repair our train network and that operating companies will receive less subsidy, which will result in reduced services and increased cost to the passengers.

It is not often that you encounter an international architectural practice operating from a residential front room. Or one working on a £20 million office scheme to be built on a site sandwiched between iconic Modern buildings from Corb, Mies, Gropius, Scharoun and others on the one side and a further site given over to an international building exhibition on the other. Not often, but both are the case with Bogevischs Buero, a five-year-old Anglo-German practice of just six staff, two of whom do their work from a small flat just off Shoot Up Hill in West Hampstead, north London.
