Here are the most notable:
- Boris Johnson will stand on quicksand. And concerned about his political and personal future
- Waves of resignations on several levels in Britain
- Britain on a date with a female face that ranks first

2022 has been an “annus horribilis” (horrible year) for England, as it has seen major historical events. The most recent event that shook not just England, but the world, was the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022.
Upon her death, thousands flooded Buckingham Castle and other royal residences with letters, toys and thousands of flowers, in a scene that reminded people of the days after Lady Diana’s death. Princess of Wales, in 1997.

- Protests in Canada, some not peaceful

- Russian oil will carry the world
- An incomplete approach costs Putin dearly
- Mass destruction in Russia and Ukraine will set Putin back
- Putin’s defender will be silenced by Biden’s contacts
So far from Hayek’s predictions regarding Russia:
Russia and its President, Vladimir Putin, were the center of attention in 2022, ever since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022.
Since then, the Russian-Ukrainian war has claimed at least 25,000 lives (Source: The New York Times), an estimated 12 million people have been displaced (Source: United Nations), and property damage could cost around $350 billion (Source : Reuters).
Reports have shown that the war is causing havoc in both countries, including protests in Russia against the invasion of Ukraine, arrests and the signing of a petition by more than a million Russians.
The war also caused energy prices to rise, which affected the cost of living in the UK and European countries, as well as in several parts of the world.
A few weeks ago there was a recent assassination deep in Russian territory, raising questions about its brazen operation and who is behind it. The target was fierce ultranationalist commentator and Putin advocate Daria Dugina, 29, who was killed by a car bomb in Russia.
His associates claimed Ukraine was behind it all, a claim Ukraine denied. Russia has vowed to retaliate.
