Eight Croydon questions to be answered in 2015

WHERE'S that £1bn shopping centre? And where's that tram extension to Crystal Palace the foppy blonde man's been promising us for years? Here's eight questions, along those lines, to hopefully be answered in 2015...

Will the council continue to show 'ambition'?

Ever since Croydon Council turned red in May, the new administration have delighted in telling the borough and his wife how 'ambitious' they are. Ambitious for culture, ambitious for business, ambitious for well, pretty much everything. And the returning summer festival to come later this year? Yep, that's called 'Ambition' too.

Expect the council leader to change his name to Tony 'Ambition' Newman by March.

Will Westfield become a 2020 vision?

Let's get it straight – this paper backs the Westfield (sorry Hammerson) development and thinks it's an unequivocally great thing for our town. But when the deal was first done, a completion date of 2017 was mooted. Then 2018, now it's 2019. By December, will we be into another decade for the Westfiled ETA? Hurry up chaps, we want our John Lewis.

Will Labour win Croydon North at the General Election in May?

What is it that bears do in the woods again?

Will the Tories win Croydon South at the General Election?

Are you aware of the Pope's religious beliefs?

Can Crystal Palace go an entire year without changing manager?

In 2014, Palace got through four managers, if you count August Keith Millen and December Keith Millen as two different people. Alan Pardew is here now (well, almost) and seems to have the backing of the fans. A bit of stability would be nice but, then, this is Palace…

Ben Haenow – Olly Murs or Matt Cardle?

Croydon's X Factor winner is a lovely, lovely man with a brilliant voice. But so was 2010 winner Matt Cardle and he's now working at DFS in Chingford (we might have made this up). The van driving rock god deserves to succeed – let's hope he becomes a proper, bona fide pop star in 2015.

Will our decision-makers get through the year without citing 'Croydon's great transport links' as a strength of our borough?

No

Finally, how many times will Boris Johnson visit the borough and promise to 'look again' at the Crystal Palace tram extension?
