2013: BBC correspondents try to predict the year ahead


At the start of every year, the Today programme asks the BBC's editors to consider what the year ahead might have in store for us all.

"I think that 2013 is going to be the year of the big gamble," home editor Mark Easton told the Today programme, speaking of welfare reform in Britain. "Cuts... are only beginning to come in."

The BBC's political editor Nick Robinson believes that "Britain's relationship with Europe will change in some way."

Elsewhere in the world, chief international correspondent Lyse Doucet believes 2013 will be a "crucial" year for Afghanistan. "There are already indications from the United States and Britain that they feel they should get the troops our sooner rather than later," she warned.
