"With four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a garage, it used to be the most expensive house on the street at £40,000."
Scooped the Evening Standard last year.
"Now a detached home in the U.S. city of Detroit has been sold for just 50p."
Sad news. But then if nobody wants to buy it, I guess you have to take what you can get. Speaking of which:
"Russian oligarch Alexander Lebedev has today succeeded in his bid to buy the London Evening Standard from Lord Rothermere's Daily Mail & General Trust, for a nominal sum, understood to be £1."
"The deal, which sees Lebedev take a stake of 75.1% in the loss-making Evening Standard, is a watershed moment for the struggling UK newspaper industry..."
You're telling me. Now if only he could have spared another 33p he could have bought himself a newspaper.
