Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4759317.stm
Just random thoughts.
What if Labour goes out, Tories come in.. what effect will that have?
Writing about web page http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=10000087&sid=alawesWp8ebI&refer=top_world_newsWell it seems Rice has specified a waiting time of 2 weeks before any resolution to the Iranian problem is broached. This gives me a few days after my exams finish to predict that it will all end in one big war. Or does that count?

Will said that the last post was not interesting in any way and that it was too vague for his liking; too much like a horoscope.
Basically, that was kind of the point of some of it. Due to my head being stuck in psychology journals and books about 10/12 hours a day at the moment, I don't actually have any idea of what state world politics are in. I don't know much of who has done what, and what they'd said. I don't know how the economies are faring in each of the major countries, and I don't know what interests the major nations have in each other and their respective resources.
Whilst I do have a few vague notions, they're not enough to make a valid prediction. Too many times have researchers/writers witnessed an event, looked back and said, look there are the indicators, why did we not see it coming? So this is less of "I think something is going to happen" blog entry, but more of a "I think something is going to happen, but Im not going to make a prediction until I've researched it more and thought about it when I've got some free time, so I'm just saying that I'll be doing this and would love input from other people about the state of affairs throughout the world."
So this is for you Will: horoscope like, vague and fairly pointless.
I keep wanting to blog, mainly about one thing. This I believe can be summed up in a paragraph. If you are already bored: please leave, it won't get any better.
The main idea, is that history repeats itself: it works in cycles – mainly because humans are stupid and don't learn from their mistakes. The argument is that a lot of the events recently are building up to something big. Things like all the car plant closures, government scandals, Iraq/Afghanistan/Iran?, US/UK/French relations, Iran's Nuclear Regime etc etc. I have this feeling that it is all building up to something and can be compared to previous issues before other world wars. I am actually so interested, that I plan to do some research and write a bit of an essay on it at some point.
The problem was, I didn't want it all to happen in the next 15 days and then no one accept it when I said "I told you so."
So this is me covering my bases.

He may well be pathologically insane; but you've got to give it to him, he doesn't give up!
Berlusconi said the incoming coalition of nine parties would be unable to govern, adding that he would arrive for work as normal at the prime minister's office when the new parliamentary session opened on Friday.
