As 2016 slunk away amid the traditional fireworks and fanfare, many in the West felt they’d finally seen the back of a year that couldn’t go quickly enough. But, quite predictably perhaps, the early signs suggest that the next 12 months are going to be even more tumultuous: for one thing, it’s only now that the true impact of 2016’s biggest bombshells – Brexit and the Trump presidency – can begin to be felt.
