Have you been to Poundbury? This awful manifesto should have been a warning to the good people of Dorchester. Accident of birth doesn't make you fit to be head of state and neither does it grant you taste in architecture.

Seeing the architectural feats of Britain was amazing, HRH has taste that is too contemporary for my liking.
Michael Heath-Caldwell
