Outlook Yesterday's unemployment figures are not much of a Christmas present.

Worse, beneath the headline data there are some really worrying trends developing.

Music: I saw Fever Ray at the Forum recently. She's Swedish and is from one of my favourite bands, The Knife. She's cripplingly shy and very rarely performs live. In order to overcome her shyness she performs in the dark using nothing but lasers and low-level lampshades on stage. I absolutely love her music. Other than that, I'm listening to a lot of old disco records, tracks like Punkin' Machine's "I Need You Tonight" and "Harmony" by Suzy Q. 'Sly & Robbie and the Taxi Gang Anniversary' is also a current favourite.
