RIBA Council was once again a hot bed of gossip.To mark the announcement of honorary fellows and the Royal Gold Medal, two councillors speculated that next year they might inundate the awards office with spoof nominations because they had become frustrated with sensible suggestions being rejected without reply. Among the names floated was David Bowie - Ziggy FRIBA.What a great idea.

Another wag said he had already been campaigning for Tony Wilson - of Madchester's Hacienda nightclub fame - for his work triggering regeneration in the city.

However, apparently George Ferguson dismissed the idea because he didn't know who he was. And who said the RIBA was out of date and stuffy? Happy holidays!
