One of the good things about architects and technicians in the UK is that they waste no time in slanging matches about their respective roles. Alas, the same cannot be said in Neighbours - land. An unseemly spat has broken out between the Royal Australian Institute of Architects and the Building Designers Association of Australia. The cause is an investigation by the country's 'Productivity Commission' which has concluded that statutory certification of professionals should be dumped (sound familiar? ).

Architects say the Building Designers Assocation will be seen as 'a refuge organisation for those that have failed to qualify or demonstrate their competency as architects'.

Here, we keep our rows within the profession.
