New Year Predictions 2015
Apologies for the slowness over Xmas of posting. With myself and Bill Quango down with man flu it is has been only the army-hardened, redoubtable Mr Drew who has been available to keep us going!
However it is traditional that we make some New Year predictions each year and then see how us and the readers do. At the Weekend, we will review 2014 and what happened, but given it is the first day of the New Year today, here is this year's challenge - five topics one answer each:
UK Election Result
So, mine are:
Diplomacy - Russia will not submit and the cold war between the West and Russia may even escalate
Macro Economics - Eurozone growth for the year will be less than 1%
Military - Iraq and Syria will see of ISIS for the main part, but the situation will still remain very messy.
UK Election - Ed Milliband will be Prime Minister, UKIP will get 5 MP's.
Open Prediction - There won't be much discussion of Fracking in the UK with the Oil price sat at $60 or less.
