Avaragado’s predictions for 2006

Neck out-sticking time. I don’t know why, but I feel the urge.

From our if-only department
Bush or Cheney will be impeached and/or defenestrated, in a shock scales-falling-from-eyes moment in the US.

s/Blair/Brown/g
The Dear Leader resigns, probably in the early autumn, and is replaced by Gordon Brown to nobody’s great surprise.

s/Kennedy/Oaten/g
Take it as read that Charles Kennedy is a goner. My money’s on Mark Oaten as the replacement, but Lembit Opik’s a good bet too.

Amateur hour
A citizen journalist dies trying to get a unique angle on a story. There is much wailing and gnashing. The death of the net is predicted.

Thar she blows
Another record-breaking Hurricane season in the Atlantic. This time Miami gets it. There are few deaths due to Miami’s preparedness, and Jeb Bush uses this as a springboard for a presidential run.

Thar she also blows
Mount St Helens.

Wembley stadiu
Just enough of the new Wembley is complete on time to hold the FA Cup Final. But it’s a bit of a shambles. All-Premiership semi-finals, very tedious.

Home win
Germany win the World Cup. England reach the quarter-finals as per, but no further.

Tech buzzword
Oh, something like “ubertags” (just googled it: 11,800 hits). How about “reputagging” (no hits).

Double trouble
Avaragado sees not one but two weddings this year in his general vicinity.

There you go: a bunch of lovely predictions. Remind me in a year’s time…

    I can assure you no such moment would happen. Bush could personally violate most people and they’d thank him for it. Otherwise the terrorists would win.
