Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Virgin Money. There are two very interesting ways 21 mins 51 secs
this could go: straight into the arms of the
RKCR/Y&R breakaway (let's call it Murphy Golding
Priest for now), or to CHI & Partners, whose RBS
Client: is backing Virgin's Northern Rock bid. Either
appointment would represent an unwelcome foray into
RKCR/Y&R's Virgin territory.

More bad news on the Nanny State/fat kids front: 11 mins 21 secs
an unexpected private members bill from the Labour
MP Nigel Griffiths proposing an outright ban on TV
ads of certain foods before 9pm.

Creston has announced it's stopping its US 5 mins 18 secs
expansion drive. Erm, where does that leave former
FCB worldwide chief Steve Blamer, hired just eight
months ago to build Creston's US presence?
