Here’s some breaking news for you guys – the gherkin, one of the most iconic buildings in London has gone bust. It seems the company that bought it back in 2007 was playing the currency markets in a bid to reduce it’s loan exposure. Instead it has all gone against the company and they are looking for a buyer.
As an individual, you can be declared bankrupt with as little as £750 in debt in the UK, but this corporation managed to rack up a few 100 million before they called it a day.
This is all just an excuse to post the photo of the gherkin that we use on our commercial site – doncharisma.com. I’m going to ask the bank tomorrow for a few spare hundred million to buy it for our new offices ;).
