I know I will be one of many people to congratulate Selma Montford on her MBE.

She and I have fought and argued for years about Brighton and Hove and development and architecture.

She is one of the people who have shaped the debate about the future of the city.

That we remain friends despite our disagreements is in no small part due to her grace as an individual and the quality of her intellect.
