FTSE100 <3500

Land Registry House Price index showing <25% falls from 2007 peak

Ah yes, welcome to 2009.....the Nu Labour 2009 that is.....so, that's it then..the beginning of the end is nigh.....all forms of public enjoyment to be censored and curtailed.....obligatory financial contributions to the Glorious Party....plus mandatory pilgrimage to worship at the Holy Shrine of St Gordon the Glorious.....and no one permitted to leave the UK unless approved by The Party.......well, OK, not quite that bad...yet.

Page 11 of the Grudiad has an article on a Mr R Burns, poet (deceased) who, it turns out, may have held republican inclinations.....hardly a surprise for a Jock now is it ?...;):E....sadly the on-line version of the story does not carry the same photo as the printed edition....notably the demise of one Ms M. Antoinette.....the link being that the prospect of seeing Ms Smith gracing a tumbril to emulate Ms Antoinette, is, erm, "rather appealing".....:E:ok:

Just a thought spooks, just a thought.

I predict that's the last time we'll ever see 'MOL' and 'humble' in the same sentence.

2009? A return to the Dark Ages when the Ruskies cut off
the gas, and the Frogs cut off the electrickery because our
money is totally worthless.

Predict that there will be a General election that the Tories will win by a landslide, can then start using funny and witty phrases such as "David Scameron", "Gorge Osborne", "William Vague" and "CONservative"etc. that are almost as intelligent, witty and original as the PPrune staples Of "Bliar" "Broon" and "NUlabour".

31st Dec 2008, 15:53
Just HOPE that the tories are buried by a landslide!
Whilst holding hands with New Labour!

I predict that none of the predictions offered here or by the talking heads in the times, a whole page of which I have just ploughed through, will come to pass on the same basis that none of same foresaw with any of the certainty & self assuredness displayed in all this writing, the shit storm we have endured thus far in 2008.:hmm:

31st Dec 2008, 15:55
I predict that at the end of 2009 there will be a thread title on here along the lines of:
"Pound hits new low against euro"

31st Dec 2008, 15:55
Serves you right for buying the Times.

Major oil strike under the houses of parliament!

Entire area to be razed to the ground!

Hundreds of MPs to be made redundant!

31st Dec 2008, 15:57
Well, I predict I won't be doing that again in a hurry.

31st Dec 2008, 16:41
I predict that in the last few days of 2009, a thread entitled "2010 Predictions" will be started on PPRuNe.

I predict that my kilted cojones will be warmed spordically and spontaneously by inquisitive Scandi girls tonight,with my full permission, as I wander along the avenida in a hazy alcohol glow tonight, just after the new year fireworks.

Not really a prediction, happens every year :}

(and you wonder why scotsmen wear the kilt)

Happy New year to you all :ok:
