Those assembled at the Park Lane Hilton bash had the dubious honour of a speech from the still relatively new chair of the RIBA Trust, former arts minister Tessa Blackstone.

One group of architects from the other side of the Irish Channel couldn't believe Blackstone's plummy voice was for real. The highlight of her speech was a passing mention that architecture would soon be exhibited on postage stamps.

What this will mean is unclear, but one cannot help imagine it will involve a fuzzy image of Christopher Wren and St Paul's.

Let's hope not.
