Because after this week Britain needs all the friends it can keep. By anyone's standards Blair has had a tough few days. Just yesterday he was blackmailed by the Saudi's and questionned by the police. But at least the Stevens Report was reassuringly non suspicious (insert a Borat-style NOT! here). Well, at least we have some certainty because after all it's Friday and that means time for the 19th edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."
1) Aware that the Piccadilly Line is 100 years old today, but have no reason to use it except for Harrods or Heathrow? React by celebrating perhaps the most refined of the Underground's routes via a splash of culture with Platform for Art's 18 specially commissioned artworks in station platforms and entry halls. From Heathrow to Cockfosters. Today to 30 April, 2007.
2) Find yourself growling at the prospect of another weekend of desperation Crimbo shopping? Pick up a cheerful drawing @ Dray Walk Gallery's Smiling-Is-Free fair by Last Lemon. Brick Lane, E1. Until 23 Dec
3) Are all the just-in-time-for-Christmas greatest hits albums making you long for something more expermental? react by heading to the Festival of Experimental Music at ICA. The Mall, SW1. Tonight to Sunday.
