Heard at Paul Keating’s residence

“So overall what’s your position on Trump?”

“I think he is the political recession America had to have”

Travelling into history

Sussan Ley has received universal acclaim as the politician responsible for creating the critical breakthrough rort that finally convinced the Australian government it had to fix the parliamentary expenses mess.

Washington latest

Wiser heads in Washington have finally woken up to the realisation that contingency planning needs to be put in place in case the Trump Presidency turns out to be a success.

Washington even later

Leading political commentators can’t decide whether Obama’s legacy will be reduced to a rump or a Trump.

Geopolitical perspective

Nigel Farage believes that Brexit is absolutely vital to the future of the UK because while today the English Channel separates the country from continental Europe in fifty years’ time it will separate it from the Middle East.

Gremlin in the Kremlin

Moscow is adamant that Putin did more to secure the Presidency for Trump than either Hillary or Bernie.

Middle East policy announcement

In a dramatic policy change the Trump administration is thought to be advocating War Talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians. If they’re as unsuccessful as the Peace Talks then at least things will remain peaceful.

Disaster warning

The measures being put in place by the authorities to respond to the Trump Presidency are similar to those activated for a category five hurricane. Emergency relief teams have been placed on standby.
