Predictions for 2011

Here are my predictions for 2011:

  1. There will be a general election in Denmark. The Social Democrats and SF will form a minority government, which will quickly get into serious trouble trying to carry out their legislative programme.
  2. There won’t be a general election in the UK, but the LibDems will get more and more worried about their lack of support in the opinion polls.
  3. In Scotland, Labour will win the election but will be unable to find a coalition partner, so they’ll form a minority government.
  4. The outcome of the AV referendum will be Yes (but it’ll be a narrow victory).
  5. There’ll be snow on the ground in Scotland for most of the time until the end of March. We’ll then have a warm and sunny early summer, but late summer and autumn will be cold and wet, and we’ll have another white Christmas.
  6. Facebook will get serious competition, but they won’t be overtaken yet as the default social networking site.
  7. The best-selling tablet computer towards the end of 2011 won’t be the iPad.
  8. Economically, Germany will start pulling the Eurozone out of the slump, but there’ll be more bad news from the US. There won’t be any sovereign defaults (yet).
  9. Petrol prices will reach £1.50 per litre.
  10. Neither Denmark nor Scotland will qualify for the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship.

  • I think iPad will still be the best selling tablet in 2011:-)

    I think we both were members of RU long time ago:-)

  • Knut, det er godt nok længe siden! Godt at høre fra dig, også selvom du tager fejl m.h.t. iPad’en! 🙂

  • Well how many did you get correct?
