CAN THE 1801 UNION CHART HELP US PREDICT WHERE BREXIT WILL END? A lot has happened in British politics in the last month. As Mercury turned retrograde for the last three weeks of March, things seesawed back and forth, catapaulting Parliament from one shambles into another, with the Prime Minister and the House of Commons vying… Continue reading Brexit: Is the UK really in danger of breaking up?
What's the likely outcome of Mercury's next plot twist in the Brexit saga? A lot has happened in British politics since my last blog post just a week or two ago. Not only has Libran, Theresa May, backed down from her rather hardline stance at the beginning of last week, to be replaced by a… Continue reading Brexit: the Next Episode
Theresa May lost last night's Brexit deal vote. But being the tough Saturn in Scorpio 'difficult woman' that she is, she's not giving up. Between now and the deadline of 31 March, MP's will now be subjected to an increasing number of pincer movements by the government as the UK prime minister attempts to force… Continue reading Brexit Vote: Next Steps

Having spent the last two elections 'getting my eye in,' hopefully this time I will be in a better position to avoid the common assumptions and pitfalls, and get things right first time round... Here goes with my election predictions!...

On Friday the 24th of June 2016, many Brits woke up to the shock of their life - the EU Referendum poll had yielded a voting result no one had expected - the Brexit camp had won by a margin of 4%. As the reality began to sink in, Leave voters began to celebrate, whilst elsewhere, there… Continue reading Shock & Awe: the Brexit vote postmortem
In less than 10 days, the UK population will go the polls to decide whether or not they want to be a part of the European Union or not. This is a fairly landmark vote, and one that has massive implications, not only for the fate of Britain, but also potentially for the rest of… Continue reading To Brexit or not to Brexit, that is question…
After the surprising, even shocking results of the UK's May 2015 general election, culminating in the mandate for a clear Conservative majority government, I thought I should write a follow-up column to my election forecast for May the 7th. Who, for instance, would have thought that by lunchtime the day after the elections, three party leaders… Continue reading 2015 UK Election Postmortem
