Friday Mash delivers you your Weak in Politics!
The story starts here...

US employment crisis
There is considerable concern that once Trump has finished replacing politicians with business executives it could create a serious unemployment crisis. There isn’t a hope in hell of redundant politicians getting a job in any other business.

The true spirit of Christmas

The FBI have confirmed that Christmas greetings can be sent to Hillary through her personal computer system without fear of scrutiny by them but warn that they should not contain anything of potential value to Russia.

The greatest gift of all

Hopefully mankind will be blessed with the greatest gift of all this Christmas, a few days of silence from politicians.

Drain Strain
After floating around with Trump for a time it looks like Mit is about to be drained from the swamp like all the rest of them.

Latest from the EU
Greece is reportedly sliding towards yet another financial crisis. Perhaps someone should check whether the cabinet has a gambling problem.

Parting can be such sweet sorrow
Commentators are warning that if Theresa May doesn’t submit an Article 50 soon she could be in a queue at the EU exit behind Marine Le Pen and Gert Wilders.

Goodwill to all politicians

Everyone should take the trouble to wish their local parliamentary representative a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. They’ll understand that you don’t really mean it but it’s the thought that counts.

Seasonal beneficence from the Australian taxpayer

This holiday season a number of politicians are exploiting the generosity of the taxpayer by going on overseas junkets with their families. Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore is the fortunate recipient of three quarters of a million to throw a New Year’s knees-up for her mates at the Opera House. These are yet more examples of why it is much better to receive like a politician at Christmas than give like a taxpayer.
