4. Guantánamo Bay will not be closed in 2010, though it will continue to gradually reduce it’s inmate population

5. The key political and economic concern in Q3 and Q4 2010 will be Inflation… “Hyper Inflation” will be the prophesised buzz words of concern in the media and blogosphere

6. At least two Labour MP’s will be exposed in the tabloids as having affairs in the lead up to the General Election
