Is the RIBA completely off its head? Please God, don't anybody vote for Richard Saxon. I'm sure he's a very nice bloke really, but judging by his completely imprudent and potentially devastating published opinions on what he would do if he becamepresident, the profession would surely shrivel up and die if he were elected. We have no future with people like that in policymaking positions.
You know why good designers avoid management roles? It's because the world of the manager is full of boring, clueless, meddlers waiting to retire and who don't know how to take advantage of the benefits they already have, and consequently screw everything up for the rest of us.
Not that I have strong feelings on the subject.
