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.
