I should wish our readers a belated happy new year.
I noticed that last year Nick and a few of our commenters were bold enough to offer up predictions:
I?m predicting that the Irish presidency (which begins today) will make progress on the Constitutional talks, though maybe not on the Constitution itself (at least on the Giscard D?Estaing version) and also that in June?s elections, the EPP will remain the largest grouping in the Parliament, but the biggest growth will be in the smaller groupings and independent/non-aligned members.
The EPP have remained the largest group.
I think I’ll refrain from any predictions myself, but you can to make your own in the comments section if you dare.
