My predictions for 2012 :-(

I guess it’s time to evaluate my predictions for 2012:

  1. The referendum on Scottish independence won’t take place yet. Right.
  2. SF will leave the Danish government. Wrong, but they changed their leader.
  3. It will again become possible to get a Danish passport in Scotland. Well, not for adults, but small children can now again get it here as far as I know.
  4. The euro will not collapse – all current members will remain inside the Eurozone. Right.
  5. The British inflation rate (measured by CPI) will not fall below 4%. Wrong — it fell as low as 2.2% before rising again.
  6. UEFA 2012 will be won by the Netherlands. Wrong.
  7. After a year with record-breaking levels of rain, Scotland will enjoy its second-warmest year ever. Wrong; Scotland had a very warm March, but not in general a very warm year, and although it has been the wettest year ever in England, Scotland hasn’t been quite as exceptional.
  8. The Icelandic volcano Katla will erupt and cause a new flight ban over Europe. Wrong.
  9. The Russian government will be forced to step down and call fresh elections. Wrong.
  10. The Eurovision Song Contest will be won by Georgia.Wrong.

So, about 2 1/2 out of 10. 🙁

I’m afraid that Troels — who predicted “the negation of each individual statement” — produced a more accurate forecast.
