Gordon Brown was on sparkling form when he introduced Zaha Hadid at an 11 Downing Street reception last week. The event was in aid of the latest Maggie's Centre for cancer patients - located in the chancellor's Scottish constituency of Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath.

Gordon thanked Zaha for flying over here to give time and energy to the project (without fee). She gently reminded him that she lives in London. Nice to hear the Treasury's view that good architecture is worth paying for - we hope this applies to the Olympics, including Zaha's aquatic centre?
