Weighty support

John Prescott was in town touring stands of the great and the good and meeting many of those that matter from the UK scene. So it was fantastic to see him opening the AJ's UK Architecture stand. Apparently, he chose this event himself to emphasise his commitment to high-quality design throughout the British built environment. Hull's most famous resident also chose this occasion to throw his notinconsiderable weight behind the slightly embattled CABE, following the harsh criticism in the ODPM select committee's report last week. It's interesting that Prezza is still very much behind the design watchdog. Let's be honest, this is probably extremely good news for all those who really care about whether the Thames Gateway is going to be a place worth visiting in years to come.
