How Correct was a Top UK Psychic for his 2017 predictions?

Predictions for 2017 - how correct was a top UK Psychic (as seen on TV)?


Craig Hamilton-Parker is our company's favourite psychic. Every year he produces a list of predictions for the coming year and we note them and check up 12 months later to see how well he has done. He does not give up and we admire him for this, although we do sense he is a fervent Brexiteer and Trump supporter!
Mr Hamilton-Parker's predictions for 2017:
1. Hillary Clinton will resign from politics because of the release of documents that reveal financial corruption and falsification of government documents. (0/10 - she's still there!).
2. Denmark and Italy pull out of EU as Euro crashes. 2017 sees Italy in serious economic problems. (0/10)
3. Economic chaos in Europe (and America) with riots in many European capital and big cities (Rome, Madrid, Berlin, Paris and Prague) In these places many people are suffering serious poverty and food shortages due to the failure of the EU. (0/10)
4. Famous building in flames as right-wing riots in Germany spark memories of the burning of the Reichstag.(0/10)
5. Britain escapes the worst of the international economic troubles and is seen as a safe economic haven. Britain, India and Australia form an economic alliance. (0/10)
6. America becomes politically divided between East and West. Riots and gun fights in America over election results and turmoil throughout 2017. Friendly, neutral troops from Canada are called in to quell unrest. (0/10)
7. USA experiences a serious drought during the summer of 2017 while Europe has floods. (2/10, although statistcally I suspect there has to be a flood in Europe somewhere every year - there was one in front of my house in Wales so I guess that counts)
8. Large fire at the UK Houses of Parliament (0/10 - not yet, although likely if reports of dodgy wiring are correct).
9. New War spills into Afghanistan as revolution erupts in Uzbekistan (0/10)
10. Ancient Giant Squid makes the news – found frozen in ice. (0/10)
11. Volcanic eruption in Iceland causes toxic gas cloud over Norway (0/10)
12. Conflicts between China and USA as satellite computers are hacked. (0/10)
13. Japan initiates an arms race in the Far East after provocation from China and North Korea. (0/10)
14. Kim Jong-un will be fall from power later in the year – maybe December 2017 or January 2018 (0/10 - Craig is still predicting this in 2018)
15. Serious threat of escalating conflict between China and India over northern border of Kashmir. (0/10)
16. Sample of Shakespeare’s bones exhumed and show that he was poisoned. Clues to a new play found in his grave. (0/10)
17. August 21, 2017 eclipse over America coincides with huge stock market fall and long-term inflation. (0/10)
18. Assassination and kidnap attempt on the pope at the Vatican. Swiss guards killed. (0/10)
Total score - 2/18. Suspect this defies the monkeys average...
Predictions for 2018
1. Assassination attempt at Balmoral - doesn't say who on, so I guess it could be a deer? Or a corgi if it gets too old and the Queen wants to save on vets' bills..
2. Terrorist attack on British motorway.
3. A new political party will be formed (repeat prediction from 2016 - could Craig have foreseen the delay?).
4. There will be a hard Brexit but trade deal allowed at last minute. Juncker will retire. Britain does separate deal with Ireland.
5. Theresa May will stay in power.
6. Jeremy Corbyn will urge lots of strikes and lose support.
7. An attempt will be made to impeach Donald Trump - and fail.
8. Donald Trump will initiate a massive trade deal with teh UK.
9. Explosion causes US warship to sink.
10. Melania Trump and Trump grandchildren release a song.
11. US will rent nuclear weapons to Japan.
12. Riots in the EU as steep economic decline takes hold.
13. Italian banking crisis will occur.

Is it possible to work as a Paralegal when you are a Qualified Solicitor

  This question comes up all the time and is quite a common query that we imagine the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) are getting better at answering due to the sheer number of people asking the question. Many years ago the advice seemed a bit varied at times, but we have recently had a candidate who wanted to work in a locum role in the short term and waiting to go back on the Roll and get a practising certificate after some time spent outside the profession. She has been given fairly concise advice on whether she could work as a paralegal whilst waiting to be readmitted which we are repeating here. This article is written as a discussion point and is not intended to be advice in any shape or form. For full advice on your particular set of circumstances please speak to the SRA (or whoever else you like, but please do not depend on the information in this article!). The SRA have a simple online test to determine if you need a practising certificate and this i

What questions are asked in an Investors in People Assessment?

Recently Ten Percent Legal Recruitment was assessed for the investor in people accreditation. We worked very hard on this and spent some time as a company ensuring that all our procedures and policies were in place and that our staff were aware of the various requirements of the Investor in People process. We wondered how the assessment would go and also what the questions were likely to be during the interviews. The assessor was very friendly and explained from the outset what she was wanting to do and we were already aware that we would have thirty minute interviews with the directors and managers and twenty minute interviews with the staff. We also had the Investors in People programme so we were able to look and see what the actual questions would be based on, but there was nowhere to indicate what questions would be asked in the investor in people assessments. So if this helps anyone else, here are the questions we were asked in our investors in people accreditation: The assessor
