Predictions for 2009

Normally at this point there should be some sort of predictions about how the year is going to pan out. Unfortunately I am rubbish at predictions, I thought Muse would win the Mercury Music prize a couple of years ago. Watching other members of the commentariat and the blogosphere has convinced me to get back on this particular horse, so here goes.

Our economy will not get out of recession this year, things will get worse. I suspect that Brown will not go for an election before the Council Elections in England or the European Elections, which makes the earliest date for an election July 2nd. I have made this prediction before, but I think that Cameron will win the next election, with a majority in single figures. The next election will be a good one to lose.

Can’t wait for that Lib Dem election victory then!!!

Did You Miss Me?

Sooo… what has been happening while I have been busy with work, because some of us on the blogosphere actually live in the real world, and have had writers block. Well…

The main news over Christmas and New Year has been the latest chapter in Israel and Palestine’s small local dispute. This is a complex dispute, which has its roots in history and our country wanting to do the right thing after the Second World War. What it has been played out on the media as is a huge playground spat, with he said, she said allegations flying all over the place. If the Hammas leaders and the leaders of Israel want to wage war, who am I to stop it, hey I would personally fill out the forms nominating these people for the Darwin award. Just leave the innocent out of your playground squabbles.

Normal service on Dispatches... will be resuming soon. Once the writers bloc disappears.
