Expect the unexpected

If this year is anything to go by it has taught us to expect the unexpected. England being beaten by Iceland (population just over 300,000) in the European Championships, Jeremy Corbyn being forced to stand for election as Labour leader for the second time in 12 months, Brexit, Teresa May becoming PM and now, to cap it all, Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States.

It’s fair to say that it was hard to predict any of this and I wonder what the odds would have been on an accumulator bet? Enough to retire ten times over I would have thought.

So, it’s got me thinking what’s in store for 2017? Perhaps we won’t Brexit, England may actually win a few games and Donald Trump may turn out to be the best thing that has ever happened for the good old US of A!

I think we have learned enough from this year that nothing’s a ‘sure thing’ these days, and perhaps it will be the same for the housing world too.

Who knows, the Government may decide that the housing sector has been battered enough in recent years and will decide to give us pots of cash to build more homes, or perhaps even give the chief executives of housing associations with a railway connection every Friday off.

Or it could go the opposite way and they may decide that to get more people on the property ladder we must sell our homes for a tenner and chief executives of housing associations with a railway connection must work 7 days a week.

Of course, I am being a bit silly, but who would have thought Sam Allardyce would have to stand down as England manager after just 67 days, Andy Murray would become World Number 1 and The Great British Bake Off would be poached by Channel 4?

It’s a funny world we live in!
