Predictions for 2020

It seems to be fashionable at this season to make predictions for what is going to happen in the new year, So here is my thoughts on what will happen over the next twelve months.

1) Britain will leave the EU, with a withdrawal agreement, on 31st January 2020

2) The relationship between the UK and Scottish governments will continue to be difficult

3) Reform of local government including greater devolution will be taken more seriously and begin to make more progress

4) There will be more investment in the NHS and in Britain's transport infrastructure, including and especially in the North.

5) Negotiations between Britain and the EU on a new Trade deal will be noisy, controversial and difficult, but a deal will eventually be struck, probably in the early hours of the morning and the very last possible day to do so, by the end of the year.
