Commons touch

  • Comment

Talking of the RIBA London Region, I see that its long-term director Stephen Robinson is standing for Parliament in May. The Liberal Democrat candidate for Chelmsford West, who has just a small Conservative majority to overturn, should be ready for the Commons culture if he wins. There can be little better preparation than hours spent in RIBA council watching the profession's backwoodsmen dribbling, dozing and debating the minutiae of some little-known policy. It makes a late-night pensions debate in a sparsely populated Commons sound positively invigorating.
