I PREDICT .......

The cash-strapped government in the eastern European republic Of Romania has found a new way of raising money. They're passing a law that will allow them to fine fortune tellers whose predictions don't come true.

In Ireland, Una Power has taken radio station Dublin's 98 to an employment tribunal for axeing her psychic phone-in-show. "I was stunned" Una, 60, told the court. "This came completely out of the blue."

A court in Kemerovo, Russia, has sentenced Gennady Osipovich to 22 years in prison for attacking a fortune teller. Ironically it was her prediction that he would be going to jail that made him angry.

A trainee hypnotist put himself into a five-hour trance while practising in front of a mirror. Helmut Kichmeier, 27, from North London, England was only released when his wife phoned a professional hypnotist to bring him round.

A great Danish writer said "It´s difficult to make predictions - especially about the future." I suppose he had a point.
