Standard bearer


Still with the great man, Hyett's star is seemingly in the ascendant. Why? He has managed to secure a monthly column in London's newspaper, the Evening Standard, Astragal can reveal. I'm told it will be a 600word 'issues' piece each time and will appear in the paper's 'Homes and Property' section. Look out for articles on subjects such as Britain's housing shortage, social housing, anti-social behaviour and why it's OK to like contemporary design. But one piece Evening Standard editor Veronica Wadley and the anti-Ken Livingstone brigade at the paper won't be accepting, thanks very much, is a pro-congestion charge article suggested by the president. Beyond their Ken.
