A service highlighting the riches of the daily press.
Good to see that Paper Monitor's finger is so firmly on the pulse, being not the only one interested in hunting down yesterday's photogenic former employees of Lehman Brothers.
The story behind the much-featured hugging couple is fittingly told by the Daily Mail and Express. Why? Because good-looking, high-achieving couple + drama + wedding = Mail (and therefore Express) magic.
They are ex-Lehman worker Blue, and her fiancé, Jack, a fellow banker further along the Wharf at Barclays, whose wedding plans have been "left in turmoil". Having paid a "deposit on her wedding costing tens of thousands of pounds", the bride-to-be tells the papers that "maybe we will just have to have a small picnic".
The Independent has tracked down one well-quoted banker who had only started at the bank that very morning, Edouard d'Archimbaud. For him, unlike Mr Dick Whittington, the streets of London are most definitely not paved with gold and he's returning to France.
Upholding its left-wing reputation, the Guardian's G2 has a playful take on the bankers' situation, analysing the contents of the sacked workers' boxes (one of which includes a toy Ferrari) as they left the buildings in London and New York. "By their accessories shall ye know them. A set of framed pictures, golf clubs or fishing rods says, 'I had a swanky corner office and life was good'."
(We at Magazine Towers would like to know what would be in your box if you too were summarily sacked.)
For any Lehman Brothers' ex-employees worried about paying the mortgage on their Chelsea pied a terre, the Times has a story which could be of interest - Terry Wrench's eco hobbit house in Pembrokeshire has been saved from demolition.
Being part of a - very a la mode - sustainable community has meant that the roundhouse, built with mud, straw, sand and water with a grass roof, will no longer be flattened. Although the commute from Wales could prove more costly than the money saved on living expenses, unless you've managed to hold on to the helicopter of course.
