Bricks and stones
And that was just the start. With a 30 ft high light halo announced for Oxford Circus, demolition plans for Portland House in Victoria, and an increasing likelihood of a Helter Skelter skyscraper, the real estate world is abuzz. And the celeb circuit was not excused with news that Madge's Marylebone house is on the market. But, less progressive things are happening for London's immaterial girl, Lily Allen, who claims to be homeless. Why does that make me smile?
So that was all bricks and stones, let's stick with words and the 26th edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."
1) Unimpressed by the latest bone pickings of Tony Blair and David Cameron? React by celebrating this capital's better half at Capitalwoman 2007. Westminster, Storey's Gate, SW1 Sat 10am-5:15pm. Free.
2) Fed up with trolling with tourists through Borough Market for your comte? React by heading to Taste East, part of a six day celebration of all that East London has to offer. Crispin Place, E1, 12-8pm Friday, 12-5pm Saturday
3) Concerned for London's future under Green Ken? React by sailing away from this sceptred isle after heading to the RYA Dinghy Sailing Show at Alexandra Palace. For all ages and budgets. Sat 10am-6pm, Sun 10am-5pm. £12
