Margaret Drabble’s hopes for the New Year

1. I'd like the Milibands to become once more the best of brothers, remember the good old days at Haverstock Comp and unite to launch a campaign to remove the charitable status of public schools. Now's the time to start.

2. I'd like Obama to solve Guantanamo.

3. My fear is that bankers will go on behaving as badly as ever and continue to reap their grotesque, excessive and undeserved rewards at our expense.
