What price the RIBA and the ARB manging to see this year out before having a massive punch-up? Institute president George Ferguson seems to be doing his bit for peacemaking by announcing that, although the ARB 'may drive us to distraction', he personally will not get involved in 'the barrage of unedifying insults that seem to characterise public exchanges on this subject'. However, in the current issue of RIBA Journal, at the end of a comparison between the institute and the ARB, the following statement appears: 'While the RIBA is determined to maintain a constructive dialogue, the ARB is now carrying out an unwarranted amount of its activities privately without effective consultation with the relevant professional bodies.

It cannot be in the public interest.' Crikey!

If this is not a (restrained) declaration of war, what is?
