The Morris complainant, a Dr Lynda Partridge of Cheyne Place, Chelsea, confirmed what many of us have thought, that when the public thinks about architects it thinks of 'people like Sir Norman Fowler and Richard Rogers'. She claimed Morris had 'destroyed my life ... I don't think she should be out there selling her services with the riba umbrella over her'. At this point the role of the arb had to be explained. Dr Partridge's husband, a Mr Church, put in a comedy appearance at the hearing after flying in from Marbella. He is only allowed to stay in the Chelsea house if he confines himself to the library, it was revealed. This is because Dr Partridge objects to her husband's habit of 'pacing round with the phone'. You couldn't make it up.
