I hope you are satisfied. Your campaign to retain PPG7 so the super rich could build ostentatious houses on Green Belt sites has promoted works like that of James Gorst (AJ 13.10.05).

Crude and inappropriate does not begin to describe the proposed pile of boxes he terms 'uncompromisingly modern'; a cliché used by architects to justify their lack of sensitivity.

'Gorstly' would be an apt epithet.
