Re: PPG 7 and the filthy rich. Your campaign has flushed out the usual col - lection of the politically correct to object to your aims.
I attended the debate at the RIBA with a client for whom I am working on the construction of a PPG 7 house (he is building it himself and drives a van).
He is not recognisable from the hysterical descriptions of the pariahs we are told are the recip - ients of this privilege. He is a hard-working farmer and engineer with a vision - he wants to live in a beautiful contemporary house on his farm in the countryside. Wow - that's just not on !
The objectors to your campaign and PPG 7 want Woodstock without the music, they want Sir Bob Geldof without the rock and roll. For the most part they are politically affili - ated with our present government, which can't shovel our public services fast enough into the mouths of the waiting millionaires and would-be millionaires.
The recipients of this government largesse will then want to build their country houses to thumb their noses at this gener - ation and the future generations who will have to pay for these misguided policies. Perhaps this is the real reason behind the objectors' righteous dogma - they don't want their successors to see the results of their politi - cal thinking.
