10 for 2010

Iain Dale amoung others has made some  predictions for happenings in 2010 so here is my attempt at 10 purely political predictions for 2010:- 

  1. 1. The Conservative majority after the General Election will be between 0 and 30.
  2. 2. Liberal Democrats will occupy between 45-50 seats after the election.
  3. In the General Election; both Caroline Lucas and Nigel Farage will be elected.
  4. In the local elections, Liberal Democrats will lose control of Liverpool and Leeds but retain Sheffield.
  5. A virtual unknown (at least a junior minister or below) will replace Gordon Brown as leader of the Labour Party.
  6. Nick Clegg will not be leader of the Liberal Democrats by the end of 2010.
  7. As Iain says, Iran will be bombarded but my prediction is it will defiantly be Israel and not the USA who does. In response, China and Russia will form a new defence organisation to rival NATO.
  8. A demonstration against the war in Afghanistan will attract over a million people.
  9. By the end of 2010 the Conservatives poll rating will start to decline.
  10. Britain will show moderate economic growth (no more than 1.5% overall) and optimism will start to sharply decline at the end of the year.

 So, there we have it…..now all we have to do is wait and see.
