London, Jan 19 (ANI): A fortune teller, who has made dozens of accurate predictions in recent years including the demise of Gordon Brown, has revealed tips for 2012, using asparagus.
Mystic Jemima Packington, 56, claims to be the world's only 'Asparamancer' and sees the future by tossing the spears into the air and interpreting how they land.
She has made dozens of accurate predictions in recent years, including the demise of Gordon Brown, the credit crunch, and Oscar glory for British film 'The King's Speech'.
For 2012, she has predicted two Royal pregnancies, a change of leadership for one of the UK's main political parties, the collapse of the Euro and the death of a high-profile British figure.
"It might sound silly to some people but my readings are very accurate. I have been doing readings using asparagus since I was eight years old," the Daily Mail quoted Packington, who is originally from Pershore, Worcestershire, but now lives in Bath, Somerset, as saying.
"My great aunt read tea leaves and I have inherited her gift," she stated.
Packington only uses fresh Worcestershire asparagus grown in the Vale of Evesham - the UK's main supplier of the vegetable.
She picks a handful of tips, tosses them into the air and 'reads' the shapes they form when they land.
One of Jemima's most remarkable predictions was that Gordon Brown would not only be ousted but also leave politics completely after his election defeat in 2010.
"I was asked to do a reading about Gordon Brown just before the general election. I cast the spears and the were all pointing down and several spear tips had lost their spores which indicates tears," she explained.
"My reading of this was that he would lose the election in 2010 and would then leave politics altogether. I was the first person to predict this and people said I was mad at the time but it came true.
"I have a very good success rate, but because it's an interpretation you can sometimes be slightly off the mark," she said.
Last year she correctly predicted a Royal baby with the Princess Royal's son Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn announcing their second child.
She also foresaw the downfall of Scottish Lib Dem leader Tavish Scott and Northern Ireland Social Democrat leader Margaret Ritchie. (ANI)
