2011: no predictions, no resolutions

Let’s see how I did with my predictions and resolutions from this time last year:

Resolution:

I resolved to arrest the decline in post frequency on this blog.
2007: 63 posts
2008: 49
2009: 23
2010: 21

Predictions:

  • Argentina will win the Football World Cup (controversial…).
    cross
  • The result of the UK general election will be a hung parliament with the Conservatives the biggest party (not so controversial).
    tick
  • Absolutely nothing will be done about banking regulation, remuneration or anything else that will prevent global recessions in the future.
    tick cross (meaning I actually don’t know – to judge this one would be to make another prediction, which I won’t do)
  • Tiger Woods will not appear in public at all if he can help it, never mind play in a major golf tournament.
    cross
  • Cadbury’s will be bought out by Kraft after all.
    tick
  • The Nobel Peace Prize will not be won by an American liberal, for once.
    tick

For 2011, I resolve to make no predictions (except for the one I’m about to make), and predict that I will make no resolutions (except for the one I just made).

Happy New Year!
