Hollywood latest

Meryl Streep is now the odds-on favourite to score the part of Hillary in the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster about how the Russians succeeded in their campaign to get Trump elected as President.

Inauguration news

Hillary has decided to attend the Presidential Inauguration on the off-chance Trump has a more pressing engagement and she gets the opportunity to pinch hit.

Tackling climate change

Governments all over the world are taking measures to address the problem of political climate change. They are absolutely committed to reducing toxic emissions from Trump and opposing any of his policies that are fuelled by old fossils.

Awaiting the re-emergence of decisive political leadership in Australia

Australians are yearning for the re-emergence of strong political leadership in Canberra like Bill telling the ACTU to go and get nicked and Malcolm telling Tony and Cory to go and join them.

Calls for an international doping investigation

It’s arguably time for WADA to investigate whether there’s been systematic doping of Russian politicians. There is a strong view that anyone who has as high an opinion of Trump must have been smoking something and military strategists are warning of a new cold war caused by ice.

Communist news
An extreme left Greens faction in NSW is calling for the end of capitalism. This must be a confusing development for the Chinese Politburo who have relied on it so heavily to make communism work better.

Brexit update
Theresa May is promising to achieve through Brexit negotiations a way ahead for both Remainers and Leavers which will make it absolutely clear to both sides whether they’re coming or going.

Another Brexit update
Theresa is considering whether to press for the retention of Nigel Farage in the EU Parliament after Brexit has happened as a keepsake. If he’s no longer involved in Brexiting and there’s no chance of him becoming UK Ambassador to Trump there’s no telling what further atrocities he could cause if he’s allowed to go feral.

This is the column with insights that all the other publications seem unable to cope with. That’s arguably because they take politics far too seriously.
