Nice intro

  • Comment

Council was also the chance for the Institute's good servants in the chamber to stand up and introduce themselves to new members, ordered by a schoolmasterly president David Rock. There was Roger Stonehouse 'reading architecture', and Jonathan Ball, from 'sun-blessed Cornwall' (he writes that his practice is 3 minutes 26 seconds from the beach hut in Bude and 19 miles from the first set of traffic lights). But Rock interrupted the fun to point out that it would be more beneficial if the nominated additional council member, aj columnist Paul Hyett, was actually inside the chamber for election. Cue applause and what must be the speediest set of promotions ever witnessed in the hallowed chamber. First Hyett was confirmed as elected, then voted in as chairman of education, and then, quick as a flash, made honorary vice-president of education. How are the mighty risen.
