It would be sad to see the Royal Fine Art Commission go the way of hereditary peers and the Lord Chancellor's traditional garb in this government's urge to modernise the uk. But who, these days, wants 'royal', 'fine' or 'art' in a title, especially when the word architecture covers everything those words used to stand for, and has the stamp of government approval too? And who should chair a new 'architecture commission'? Someone, obviously, who is a champion of architecture. Definitely not one of Tony's cronies, but someone who he admires. Being a buddy of Richard Rogers would help. One person fits the bill: Tory former environment supremo John Gummer!
