Food for thought

Some political documents are too lengthy to stomach.

Others, like the RIBA manifesto for architecture, just lack bite. The 12-page pamphlet certainly wasn't to the taste of wannabe architect Wayne Hemingway. Speaking at the official launch of the document at London's Portcullis House last week, the Red or Dead founder criticised the manifesto for being too bland. He also suggested the institute could learn a lesson about passion and enthusiasm from celebrity cooks. 'The manifesto is dry, ' he said. 'Where is the one thing that is going to get tabloid coverage? Where is your Jamie Oliver moment?'
