If all the world’s a stage then Brexit is a farce heading for tragedy (or is that the other way round?) – but it’s not the only theatrical performance currently showing at the government playhouse.
A much more enjoyable diversion is the Building Better, Building Beautiful commission starring pantomime villain Roger Scruton.
This month the directors of that particular production revealed the supporting cast, a long overdue announcement. With crushing predictability none are architects and one is the founder of Create Streets, a lobby group with laudable aims but which lets itself down by getting hung up on style. More grist to the mill.
