Last week's annual dinner of the British Council for Offices, incidentally, was a splendid affair. Property man David Steventon of DTZ, current president, surveyed Grosvenor House and the 1,350 diners at the start of the evening, and remarked that there must be a recession on.

It did not really seem like it.

According to John Lenahan, a very amusing after-dinner cabaret, the builders present had paid twice as much for their tickets as everyone else. 'That's because they thought the price was an estimate.'

Boom! Boom!
