Nice fellows

Nice to see John Prescott, exarchitecture minister Alan Howarth, Richard Rogers and English Heritage boss Simon Thurley jostling for position down at the front of the audience for the RIBA's honorary fellows and annual lecture bash.

And jostle they did as people stood up and sat down trying to work out who should sit next to whom. RIBA head of awards Tony Chapman surveyed the room like a secret service close protection agent, willing to leap on anyone that so much as looked at Prescott in a funny way. Prescott made an admirably succinct speech on behalf of all those who had received fellowships, and promised (threatened) to return soon to give a full-scale speech.
