I was interested to read Tim Drewitt's comments about the need for a well-respected figure to come forward for the presidential race. But they didn't and they are in the main conspicuous by their absence. They certainly do not mix in with the rest of us in debates on RIBAnet, a 'democratic forum' base that cost us £120k.
However, if one of these more appropriate candidates does have some ideas about the promotion of our profession and (and not the promotion of themselves), then I for one would dearly love to know what they are. Perhaps they could send me their ideas in 10 bullet points.
