Regional opportunity

I hear an intriguing suggestion for the new architecture commission. One rumour runs that it will set up a 'national architecture service' where all sensitive sites, large or publicly funded buildings will have an architect nominated by the commission. Mindful of regional consciousness, that will always be a local architect, who will only refer to experts in complicated matters. Suitably managed it should improve the nation's architecture just as the nhs has improved the nation's health, enhance architects' status and give them job security, and ensure equality of opportunity. Clients would benefit because they would no longer pay fees which would, like everything else in our happy Blairite utopia, be paid out of the lottery or whatever euphemism we give to taxation. And who would be the champion? Step forward Kate Macintosh.
