Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Beattie McGuinness Bungay's Cheil deal is being 1 hr 39 mins
compared to when Publicis Groupe bought into BBH.
Let's hope we don't end up comparing it to when
Hakuhodo bought into Mustoes.

Will Robert Lerwill's abrupt departure from Aegis 50 mins 40 secs
prompt Vincent Bollore to capitalise on reported
boardroom tensions to make a bid?

Ed Morris reverts to a consultancy role at Lowe 45 mins
London. Is this the prelude to him cutting links
completely?

Britney Spears' rehab is complete. After The X Factor, 20 mins 10 secs
she's now the most searched-for subject on the
internet in the UK. A big celeb endorsement offer will
surely follow.
