For the first time in 13 years of this competition I have reviewed the answers and no one was even close. My cat could have done better.
I guess this anecdotally suggests that 2019 was the most crazy year yet - even weirder than the 2010 and 2009 years of the financial crash.
Only gridbot predicted an election but it produced a hard brexit and a hung parliament. Nick Drew did well to suggest there would be a centrist party but it did not even survive the year out to qualify for the final.
My own predictions of May to survive and the remainders to win was fortunately 100% wrong.
Maybe 2020 will see the beginning of a return to normality and some more predictable events unfolding. Or perhaps the zeitgeist of the end of the decade will continue with unknown terrors to some.
A new prediction competition will be coming up next...
Happy New Year one and all!
