Information reaches me that all did not run too smoothly on Paul Hyett's recent visit to Finland. Arriving at the airport to return to London, Hyett popped into the terminal shop to pick up a Bob Dylan album. The next thing he knew, a pair of scissors emerged from behind the desk and the assistant has slashed his Visa card in half. To make matters worse, two security guards appeared and escorted him away (voluntarily) to face interrogation about his use of a 'stolen' credit card. After many phone calls, it transpires that the institute's First Lady had lost her card the day before, had reported it stolen but had failed to inform the Great Helmsman. All will be relieved to hear that Helsinki's finest were very understanding and were (eventually) happy to allow the RIBA boss on his way.
