Predictions for 2009

As 2008 as been a hectic year in terms of politics and the recession and other things, what will be in store for the United Kingdom in 2009 A.D??

On the subject of the EU Elections, UKIP will probably make some increases in votes in certain areas, though not as much as in the 2004 EU Elections. The BNP may get 1 or 2 MEPs, but they will have to suck up to the other nationalist parties in the EU such as the Front National and Vlaams Belang.

On US Politics, When Obama officially enters the White House on 20th January 2009, there will be high hopes from all sectors of US society that change will come, though this will unlikely be anything big and Obama will probably not be re-elected come 2012.

On the economy, Im guessing job losses will continue throughout 2009, mostly occuring in the first half of 2009. The economy could start to grow back from the 3Q/4Q of 2009, but wont be back to pre-recession levels til late 2010/early 2011.

On Technology, The rumoured iPhone Nano may come out in Feb/Mar 09, though I would prefer to get an iPod Touch as I really have a mobile (SE K800i) . Also the netbook laptops will become more popular among the bargain hunter techies.
