The Real Deal
Do you see what has happened here? One slip off the cultural detox plan and we have already forgot about yesterday's disastrous rate rise or that incursion into Somalia. I would have called it invasion, but then you may have been alarmed. And I wouldn't want to distract you from the real ever present worry over Kate Potter Middleton's security. Because then you may forget about this week's MI5 terror alert service. And with that level of spitfire, let's get ready to rumble with the 22nd edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."
1) Looking forward to seeing Leo DiCaprio in his latest film, Blood Diamond? React by learning more about the illicit diamond trade from award-winning photojournalist Kadir van Lohuizen at the Host Gallery. Much more real than Hollywood could ever look. 1 Honduras Street, EC1. Until 27 Jan. Free.
2) Determined to not let a quarter percent rate rise affect your consumer spending? React by heading to the shops at Oxo Tower Wharf where there will be discounts of up to 70 percent. Sat until 28 Jan.
3) Slightly disturbed that temperatures in January are warmer than July? React by heading to the Russian Winter Festival taking place on the eve of the Russian 'Old New Year.' The great atmosphere will make you forget that ice is melting. Trafalgar Square. Sat 11-6:30PM.
