Guardian angel

Jonathan Glancey was on the receiving end of some No 10 haranguing after his less-thanfulsome description of the Dome contents on the front page of the Guardian. Glancey was able to respond that he had been a personal invitee at one of the Prime Minister's 'creative people' soirees last year. He described how, when introduced to Peter Mandelson by culture secretary Chris Smith, Mandelson said: 'The Guardian? Oh, that rag, ' turned on his heel and flounced off.

How appropriate that the campest minister should have a tent as his monument.
