On the expected cuts in government adspend (from Campaignlive).

This can only lead to the end of society as we know it. Life expectancy will fall, no-one will be able to find the YouGov site and accidents at work will triple. And the less said about asbestos the better.

This is bad news for our industry but better for our country ... damn you social conscience!

- Simon Fraser

Indeed, bad news for the COI roster of agencies, but excellent news for the viewers. I can't recall an ad break in recent months on C4 that hasn't included at least one "Don't do that, you naughty public" message from the Government.

- Chris Worsley

We will all have to "think" for ourselves. Reminds me: must get that rickety old wooden ladder out for the weekend work - I need some compensation now.

- Tom Denford

A good money-saving tip might be to just cram all the ads into one 30-second mega-spot: "Hey kids, listen up - talk to Frank, don't carry knives, carry condoms, look both ways, eat more fruit. And vote Tory."

- Max Harrington

(In Elton John style)

Goodbye COI ...

Though I never knew you at all ...

You've had the chance to spend big bucks ...

And now you take the blame ...

And it seems to me you lived your life ...

Like a candle in the political wind ...

Never knowing which party to cling to ...

Now the coalition has set in ...

And I would have liked to have known you ...

But I was just a small agency ...

Your budget just burned out ...

And now you are history.
