Using the little known dark art of Chocolatomancy and the mystical power of a AAA battery I have been bestowed with all the knowledge for the year ahead. Behold Stegzy Gnomepants’ 2008 Predictions.
There will be an assasination attempt on a major international political leader. But for security reasons the general public at large will not learn of it until after they leave office.
A large tropical storm will prove problematic and cause devastation in a far off land.
The price of oil worldwide will continue to rise causing many western countries to face financial difficulties.
A terrorist attack in the west will result in global condemnation.
Shocking and disturbing information about the Pope’s past will filter into the public domain.
Rising petrol prices will result in fuel protests and riots in some northern towns. The riots will be heavily condemned and more laws will be introduced to further supress public unrest.
Gordon Brown will face further humiliation and calls for his resignation by party members may result in the catalyisation of a General Election.
A major accident on a motorway will result in calls for foreign drivers to be required to pass a British driving test before being allowed on British roads.
Parts of Suffolk will be submerged during an unusually high tide.
