The MindBullet proposes that by September 2010 David Cameron will be the Prime Minister. A conservative government is suggested in this scenario.

The dateline for this scenario is September 2010 - I do recall that in January 2009 that was the case. ;)

There is a saying that in the world of Technology we overestimate progress in the short term and underestimate in the long term. The original timelines appear in retrospect to be too soon. I would suggest that the only reason is that there are many people working hard to try to prevent the scenario.

Another version of that saying is "We always underestimate the rate of progress of new technology, and we always overestimate our ability to use it".

I guess it even applies in a rather oblique way in your examples - we must never underestimate the ability of determined individuals in power to screw things up!
