Predictions for 2019

  1. The UK will begin leaving the EU on 29 March 2019. It will take 10 years to leave, 10 years for it to be evident to the whole country how stupid it was and 10 years to get back in, with none of our current special measures.  (Hope this prediction doesn’t come to pass but fear it will).
  2. The only thing to make EU-positive lefty-liberals to have pause for thought will be the EU Elections in May which will result in big gains for the so-called populist right.
  3. No progress towards same-sex marriage in the Church of England, despite much clearer calls for it to happen.
  4. Significant concerns in many UK dioceses about the cost of bishops, and particularly their spouses, attending the Lambeth Conference in 2020. (Over £5000 each).
  5. Elizabeth Warren / Beto O’Rourke begin to emerge as the Democratic dream ticket.
  6. Stricter legislation in connection with drone operators.
  7. Steps towards legalisation of cannabis  under serious consideration within SNP.
  8. No referendum on Independence.
  9. Cyber attacks merging with terrorist attacks
  10. One of Scotland’s daily newspapers ceases print publication.
