Goodbye to all this

  • Comment

So it's goodbye to riba council from Owen Luder, who's given solid service for 31 years with only a two-year break. He told council last week he was leaving due to a 'possible conflict of interest' - interpreted as his work with the arb (or possibly spending more time with his beloved Arsenal) - but has on the whole enjoyed his spell in the council chamber, where the same issues, such as architects' sign-boards, keep cropping up. Having used the press skilfully in his various riba presidential campaigns, the Loughborough Junction Lad is responsible for the fourth estate being refused access to registration board council meetings. How long this scandal can continue (compulsory taxation without scrutiny) must be taxing the keen brain of registrar Andrew Finch. But perhaps not.
