Elections 2024 | The Oligarch Kings

Hogarth “Chairing the Member” 1818

Auld Mac’s Almanack, or what the calendar for 2024 holds.

And boy is 2024 going to be a one huge year for those of us who enjoy following elections and trying to for-guess the result.  Truly we are in for a combo of the World Cup and the Olympics as far as the sheer wealth of elections coming our way next year.   63 elections in total!   Some real big events too, no minor league business this!  This isn’t going to be a faux election for some half-forgotten dictator in a broken state.  The UK will have general elections, and Europe as well, and of course the BIG event running through the whole year and culminating in November will be the United States Election. And America looks like being the biggest surprise of all.

But whilst elections are invigorating and exciting, they represent a pause and stop in governmental and diplomatic process whilst countries make their choices and foreign governments adjust themselves to whom they will be dealing with, especially in drawn out processes like America engages in.  It’s no surprise to predict more popularism (woke-speak for the electorate being angry with the political classes), a shifting right, anti-Green, anti-immigration and anti-Climate change foolery, and of course ditching gender politics! 

All good knock about stuff, but is this the best year for paralysis in quite so many corridors of power in the West?  We have two wars openly being fought, and a third in the Gulf just not declared. Because any election in a country means no one can actually deal with anything.   I doubt it will be a good thing.

So, I suggest you print out the following and pin it on the wall!  One a week all year oh what joy!
