North Circular, London

As we are living in a world where Goldman Sachs has been part-nationalised by George Bush and Iceland went bankrupt in a weekend, I can't think why anyone would be particularly shocked by the idea that in a declining market of 19 national news titles, it would be unthinkable that a significant number might disappear, given the apparent scale of economic failure. It's not to be welcomed, or encouraged, but you cannot pretend that somehow it won't happen.

Emily Bell goes grim on newspapers.
