2016 has been quite the year

Politically, it’s been a rollercoaster – from Brexit, Donald Trump’s election to the alleged ‘rise’ of the Far-Right across various political spectrums, whether it’s good or bad news for you, we really have hit an extreme number of changes in 12 months.

Former Prime Minister Harold Wilson once said, “a week is a long time in politics” – most of this year has been lived in great uncertainty, particularly in terms of what comes next. It’s certainly not a nutritious manner of existing, but it’s energy nevertheless.

Future generations will look back at this year as a portentous one and as we look ahead, the next decade will live out these themes.
