It’s that time of year again, when the Crikey seers read the entrails and divine what awaits the dark world of auspol in the new year.
Sure, our predictions for both 2018 and 2019 were way off (Labor well and truly cacked the bed in May, and the emergence of Greta Thunberg meant News Corp has called off its war against its old enemy the Great Barrier Reef).

After getting caught trying to sell-out Australia’s gun laws and suffering zero electoral repercussions for it, how does One Nation outdo itself in 2020?
It’s the Olympics! Time to drop the culture wars, crack an Asahi, and bask in the majesty of the human spirit. How does Tokyo 2020 inevitably become about something other than sport?
Another year, another News Corp holy war. Who’s next?
Bad news, you couldn't pierce the veil this time. But don't lose hope quite yet: you might have a future in political polling.
Hey, we might make a psychic out of you yet. Just don't go making any big bets until you've tuned that third eye.
