Astragal was stood quietly, Ginsters sausage roll in hand, at the back of the large audience that gathered last week for Carmody Groarke's Winter Nights lecture at BDP in Clerkenwell. The AngloAustralian pair are very, very good - after only 12 months they already have schemes all over the world. While exiting the talk, Astragal was invited to the launch of Ken Livingstone's Design for London. Red Ken took time out to regale the crowd with a bit of Francebashing, stating that London must be doing something right if even the French are choosing to live here. Oh, how the audience laughed. But, being an avid Francophile, Astragal was suitably insulted. Brushing the sausage roll crumbs from his waistcoat, he donned his cape and rushed outside to an awaiting carriage. 'Home James! Don't spare the horses!'
