Stormy Daniels' truth elixir, peace on a precipice and the Prada shearling lined sandals

Cough, cough, splutter, splutter. You must excuse this reporter. She's just been down to her local perfume counter to check out Stormy Daniels' brand new fragrance Truth.

You see, this reporter was curious to see what it was all about and, after being squirted from top to toe in the stuff, it's fair to say she got a little bit more than she bargained for. In fact, this reporter is pretty sure Donald Trump gave a similar excuse in regards to his own encounter with the porn star.

To remind you, lest you have forgot, Ms Daniels is the one suing the American President after he denied "having relations" with her in 2006 shortly after his youngest son was born. Ms Daniels, in good old entrepreneurial spirit, has decided to fight Trump's denials not only through the proper legal channels but, so it appears, through the perfumery shelves.

What most intrigues this reporter about the fragrance is whether it will indeed cause the wearer to speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth in manner of a truth elixir? This reporter understands we are not living in a Harry Potter novel (and part of her thinks 'shame', as compared to what's going on in the real world, Voldemort is a walk in the park) but it would certainly make things a little more interesting for a perfume, which is otherwise going to find itself in the Perfume Shop's bargain basement sale next to Britney Spears' Fantasy.

You know, this reporter does declare she thinks the perfume may be beginning to take hold. And what better way to test out its truth telling propensity than a spot of global news.

First up, and talk of the devil, it's the big man himself, Mr Trump who has announced that America will be pulling out of the United Nations human rights council because it is nothing but a "cesspool of political bias". According to the US's ambassador Nikki Haley, America has been calling for reform of the council for over a year, but to no avail.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres voiced the feelings of the many when he commented: "Given the state of human rights in today's world, the US should be stepping up, not stepping back".
But this reporter must point out it can be no co-incidence that Trump has decided to pull out of the human rights council the very week he has come under immense fire for abusing the human rights of refugees at the Mexican border by taking their children away.

On that matter, Trump has now come out to say he too does not like to take children away from their parents but that he has no choice because it is written under Democrat law that he must do so. He claims Congress must come up with the legislation which will stop him.
We do all realise at this point don't we that Donald Trump is one toothbrush moustache away from full on Heil Hitler?

Just to further demonstrate world peace is balancing on a precipice, the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has warned that after the UK leaves the union it cannot continue to benefit from EU-wide security and intelligence services including terrorism databases, Europol and surveillance system Galileo.
Mr Barnier said Britain cannot pick and choice which bodies it chooses to remain in but his words have provoked Jeremy Fleming, director of surveillance agency GCHQ, to breach his spy conduct and make a rare intervention into political policy by pointing out the UK has helped break up terrorist operations in four European countries in the last year.
The truth is, Barnier will now say anything to make Britain stay.

Meanwhile, as moves are being made to make medicinal cannabis legal in this country following a huge uproar over the removal of cannabis oil from a 12-year-old epileptic boy called Billy Caldwell, William Hague has been calling for Theresa May to legalise cannabis entirely.
The former Conservative party leader said the UK's drug policy was "inappropriate, ineffective and utterly out-of-date". He continued that it was deluded to think cannabis could be "driven off the streets" and was akin to asking the army to recover the empire. (Good youth reference Haguey).
Theresa May's spokesperson has formally replied by confirming (perhaps unnecessarily) that the Prime Minister has never smoked cannabis and perhaps more importantly, but not as intriguingly, there were no plans to legalise the substance.
Disappointing for many in light of the state of the world.

Now unfortunately it does appear the truth serum is wearing off as this reporter approaches today's fashion fix. And there she was all prepared to give a poor, yet truthful, review of Prada's shearling lined leather sandals saying it looked like two rodents had crept inside and the wearer had accidentally squashed them.
In absense of truth she must now say, what an ingenious idea they are for those who simply cannot decide whether they want they feet to be aerated or cosy.

All aboard the pizza ferry, headed for absolutely nowhere new

THIS Reporter wishes to express her fathomless thanks to the Westminster crew, none of whom decided to take upon themselves the tired old trope of making new year's resolutions - on off chance a better version of themselves existed - and instead continue in the exact same farcical way they blundered through 2018. Because despite the fact ministers had, in theory, laid their dispatch boxes on beds of tinsel for the duration of Christmastide, there is still much for us to catch up with. First, but by no means foremost, Sajid Javid, Home Secretary - who it has reached This Reporter via the rumour mill likes to call himself "The Saj" - perhaps short for Sergeant but more likely, Sajid - cut short his luxury £1,000-plus a night safari festive break in South Africa to rush back and deal with what he coined a "migrant crisis" but in reality was two brave souls casting out across the Channel in a rubber dinghy. Nevertheless, Javid called for immediate clampdown on th

Children lose sleep over climate anxiety and Boris Johnson's paternity leave

FROM young people surveyed by Newsround revealing their climate anxiety, to Boris Johnson announcing he will "almost certainly" take paternity leave, these are the news headlines according to This Reporter on Wednesday 4th March 2020. A survey for BBC Newsround has found that children are losing sleep over climate change and the environment. Two thousand children aged between eight and 16-years-old were given the opportunity to answer questions on climate anxiety. And the results overwhelmingly showed that most children  - four out of five - considered the problem of climate change important to them, while three out of five were worried about the impact climate change would have on them when they're older. One in five have even had a bad dream about it. But when asked about the action being taken by grown-ups to tackle the problem, two in five don't trust adults to tackle the challenges and nearly two-thirds say leaders aren't listening enough to young people&#

Meghan and Harry "grin in the rain" and the Kimono-wearing fox killer

FROM Meghan and Harry making their first appearance in the UK together since Megxit, to the kimono-wearing fox killer who appears to have been cleared of all crimes, these are the news headlines according to This Reporter on Friday 6th March 2020. Yes that's right, This Reporter is declaring this particular news gathering outlet a Coronavirus free zone as we kick off today's headlines with the news Meghan and Harry, otherwise known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have returned to the UK and had their photograph taken together, under an umbrella, in the rain. The couple were in town - London specifically - as they wind up their official duties before bowing out of royal life forever, with last night's paparazzi extravaganza related to their attendance at the Endeavour Film awards. With what we can only assume were fixed grins on their faces as they braved the weather, and the fact these moments under the media spotlight, were exactly what they were talking about when

Summer Riots, Eskimos and Camping It Up at the MET

THERE will be riots on the streets if the Government continues to roll out its controversial Universal Credit benefits system. That is the warning from former Prime Minister Gordon Brown who predicts a return to poll tax-style chaos and a summer of discontent if Theresa May does not call a halt to the scheme. The Universal Credit system combines six benefits in one and is set for a full national roll out next year, despite countless reports of claimants already on it being plunged into dire financial straits as a result. Mr Brown said: "Surely the greatest burning injustice of all is children having to go to school ill-clad and hungry. It is the poverty of the innocent - of children too young to know they are not to blame". This Reporter comments, it really must be a sign of the times, that Gordon Brown returning as Prime Minister seems a welcome idea. Moving on and President of America, Donald Trump has declared his daughter Ivanka would be "dynamite" as the

Neon, General Strike and BBC "Funky" Two

IN a world where the "people's voice" is being used more as a catchphrase than an actual signal of mass opinion, it is no wonder fashion types are reaching for neon. The traditional preserve of roadside workers and 90s rave fanatics, all garments in bold and brash, fluorescent hues are bang on trend for autumn. This obsession with a retina burning colour palate can only be down to our collective sense of being all but invisible, This Reporter muses. Though others would blame the trend setting power of neon-loving wallflower Kim Kardashian. Wherever you plan to pin the impetus, lime greens, shocking pinks and fluoro yellows are the only colours to be seen in this season (and boy will you be seen), whether hi vis evening wear, neon knits, colour-clash separates or standout accessories, being your chosen poison. This Reporter is, tentatively, opting for this over-sized neon pink turtleneck from Zara. If she hasn't the guts to wear it, she'll stick it on a flagpo
