The Year in 2014
The Year of the Horse has dawned and it will go at a galloping pace. According to the Chinese, this year will be one of high energy, big decisions and fast-moving events. They are not wrong more people will vote in elections than at any other time in history, patriotism will soar in a series of huge sporting events, and there are big decisions in referenda and at several make-or-break summits. So all diplomats can do is saddle up and enjoy the ride.
