Designer democrat

  • Comment

Few designers get a leading article in The Times all to themselves, but Sir Terence Conran was one of those rare exceptions after he equated eating good food in enjoyable surroundings to the evolution of democracy. 'The huddled masses queuing at Quaglino's for a plateau de fruits de mer (at £27.50 per person) must be grateful that they are playing their part in the emancipation of mankind,' the Thunderer sniffed, suggesting that Conran's influence on the Millennium Dome should be restricted. Conran tartly observed, in a letter to the paper, that it would be odd to make the dome a religious building; given that churches are empty all over the country, why add to them with one which covers an area the size of Mayfair! He also had to correct the erroneous belief that he is an adviser on the Doom project.
