The Week: I-Q - The internet question - What now for Y&R London?

Ogilvy once said: "There are very few men of genius in advertising agencies. But we need all we can find. Almost without exception they are disagreeable. Don't destroy them. They lay golden eggs."

The senior management team have laid many eggs at Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R, they have been prepared perfectly, through the development of brand strategy for Marks & Spencer, and the breeding of (new digital agency) Saint ... these eggs are starting to hatch, and as long as they hatch how they have been prepared to - Y&R will hold its own! - Tim Harvey

Another paranoid knee-jerk reaction that if a management team departs then all hell breaks loose, seas boil and chariots of lion heads rain down from the skies. No-one is irreplaceable, change is fresh and good and the sun will still rise in the morning. Back to work girls, it's not the car crash journos want us to think it is. - Double Ambitious

Clearly, the client still has confidence in the agency - Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R has retained the Virgin Money account after a two-way shoot-out against Beattie McGuinness Bungay. - James Walters
