Media heat loses sight of true election issues

  • Comment

Elections seem to have the unfortunate habit of producing more heat than light, and the media understandably enjoys stoking the fire.Whatever is said in such circumstances, I bear no grudges and hope that, whoever wins, we can all bury our differences, real or invented, and work together to advance the cause of architecture and the status of the profession.

Thankfully, Paul Hyett will remain in office for a further year and the president-elect has that preparatory period working alongside him - an enormous advantage over previous presidents. Whether that should be Annette, David or me, I am certain that the profession is best served by drawing up clear rules of engagement for the future, or we shall all suffer the fallout.
