Your Predictions For 2018

Recommended Posts

I thought it might be an idea for people to put down their predictions for 2018. 

A bit like the celebrity death sweepstake but no prediction is off limits. 

From the sublime to the bloody ridiculous, all contributions welcome. Anything from the ecomony to armageddon.

Mine is that the Beckhams will finally call time on their sham of a marriage. I have no foundation for this other than her miserable face. 

Any others?

It will become increasingly clear that Brexit has been sold out on, with a worse-than-no-deal deal being foisted on the long suffering Brit populace

SJWs will step things up to an even more ridiculous level

We'll all (well, 99% of us) will be poorer than when we started the year

Mine:

1. Treason will stand down, the Tories will vote in another "wrong person for the job", and Steptoe will be PM by this time next year.

2. Bitcoin will crash and ETH will replace it in value.

3. MrPin will post regularly again.

On the international stage WWIII. North Korea will launch a nuclear weapon at America. It will be brought down before it lands and trump will retaliate, leaving a black hole where Korea once was

near home, mad max scenario and civil war. The Germans will be jackbooting it in th UK, finishing off what they failed to do 70 years ago.

It's a bit early to have started on that bottle of wine!

She's always had a miserable face. 

You've got me wondering now, if a miserable face is quantifiable. Should I have said an even more miserable face the previously?

One can but hope.

That's not a prediction, that's just wishful thinking.

ive just noticed ive got some with a best before date of jan 2015,do they mature like a fine wine?

Pickling web lore says yes but I have none of my own raw data, as yet, to support the hypothesis.

If the seal's intact you shouldn't get botulism, probably.

Apologies, must have misunderstood your intentions.

Are not almost all predictions a form of wishful thinking though?

To be honest, I think the world is now so mad anything could happen.

We are outside any form of normality, Armageddon is a real possibility especially in Western Europe.

I don't see any Black Swan events (well, one never does) but I do predict a ramping up of certain existing trends, eg:

  1. Brexit: the betrayal will continue, to the point where something worse than remaining will probably emerge.
  2. SJW lunacy will continue, with more sinister legal clampdowns on dissent. The US and Canada may fight back, but Brits will capitulate. 
  3. Uncontrolled immigration will continue and increase, with the 'summer invaders' reaching record proportions. Calais Jungles will become the  norm in many places. 
  4. Tory woes will continue, with a possible snap election and Steptoe victory (see number 2).
  5. Tories will continue to morph into an SJW party. 
  6. The Visegrad Treaty states will be forced to back down on their policy of not admitting refugees.

I see outbreaks of serious rioting in Germany and Sweden causing Governments to fall.

Serious trouble at the 'Jungle' in Northern France.

UK income taxes rise to pay for 'Diversification' and immigration.

Planning permission in the UK to allow shanty towns.

I think the NK's launching an actual nuke that explodes near or on Japan or the US is more likely than many suspect. Already Western media have turned Trump into the bad guy and, whilst they have not elevated Kim to sainthood yet, I suspect it is only a matter of time.

I think it will be launched a week after Kim has been given Aung San Suu Kyi's freedom of Dublin.

I'm getting a £2k bonus next week for working my ass off for 12 months.  Over £1k will go on tax and NI.  The hardworking tax payer has had enough.

Civil unrest.

So that's about £5 a day. Probably didn't cover the alcohol bill it induced.

Was it worth it?

      Interesting little piece, which raises the question is London becoming too dangerous a place for its itinerant celebrities.
      https://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/news/west-london-news/liz-hurley-nephew-stabbed-battersea-14392789
      The 21-year-old nephew of actress Elizabeth Hurley was stabbed multiple times in a “brutal attack” in Ascalon Street, Battersea, London.
      Liz Hurley tweeted “My 21-year-old nephew was repeatedly stabbed in a brutal attack in London on Thursday'
      "They are believed to have been attacked by a group of males who got out of a vehicle and assaulted them before fleeing the scene."
      No arrests have been made.

      This is a good match for Jamie's Pukka restaurant collapse thread but deserves its own.
      I very much enjoyed Channel 4's The Hotel (some episodes still available on Youtube) as it followed the chaotic Mismanagement of Mark Jenkins of his Grosevnor Hotel in Torquay, his generally useless staff who spent most of their time playing up to the camera rather than working (Christian being the prime example).  This wasn't schadenfreude, for all the faults it genuinely seemed a nice place to be.
      Anyway, encouraged by the camera Mark and co. had one whacky idea after another to "save the Grosevnor" until eventually time ran out and he had to concede defeat and sell it to someone who gave the impression of being a hard headed financial expert - own helicopter, accountant, specialised in buying hotels cheap.
      But TV turned his head; having been presented as a financial success he thought he couldn't lose and, disliking the low rent image of the Grosvenor, proceeded to throw vast amounts of money at it to turn it into a luxury venue, hooked up with a celebrity chef (that's always a good idea...) and actually renamed it after him: the John Burton-Race    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Burton-Race
      (JBR himself having gone bankrupt in 2009)
      Spin forward a few years and:
      His hotel group is in administration and his hotels up for sale because, as he says himself, he spent too much money on The Grosvenor.
      Looks like that brief TV appearance at the end of Series 3 turned his head.
       
       
      Several very good hotels up for sale as a consequence:

      Stumbled across this and thought that a thread with all the terrorist arrests would be a good idea.  They seem to crop up with increasing frequency to then disappear, rather like certain RTAs.  So, I thought it time to capture.
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-42410084
      An army bomb disposal team is at a house in Chesterfield after police arrested four men in terror raids across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire.
      A cordon has been set up and nearby homes are being evacuated at the site in central Chesterfield, police said.
      A 31-year-old man who lives at the address has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences.
      Three other men aged 22, 36 and 41 were arrested in the Burngreave, Meersbrook and Stocksbridge areas of Sheffield.
       
      Bloody Yorkshire people.  who would have thought they would resort to terrorism to get their own way for independence.    I'm assuming my analysis is correct here...
