Making mischief

You can almost hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth emanating from the ARB’s Weymouth Street citadel. Yes, the protection-of-title militia are set to be mobilised again. Their target? The rather aptly named Mischief PR, who sent Astragal what, on the surface, appears to be a rather harmless piece of press release puff revealing that 52 per cent of British office workers secretly plan their home improvements during office hours. Astragal, for one, rarely thinks of anything other than regrouting while toiling away at AJ Towers. But Mischief, bless them, made one fatal mistake in this press release missive. One can almost imagine the naïve PR compiling it and wondering ‘What would make a decent title?’ Unfortunately they settled on screaming capital letters declaring: ‘BRITAIN IS A NATION OF DESK ARCHITECTS’. Oops. Watch out Mischief, the ARB is about to get medieval on your ass, and it won’t be pretty. Astragal is going to close the blinds, ignore the screams, and concentrate on repainting the games room.
