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.

Government accused of Coronavirus cover-up and Veggie Corbyn booed at kebab awards

FROM the UK Government announcing it will only release Coronavirus data weekly, to vegetarian Jeremy Corbyn presenting an award for the best kebab, these are the news headlines according to This Reporter on Thursday 5th March 2020.

The Government has been accused of withholding information about the spread of Coronavirus after a 70 per cent increase in confirmed cases prompted health chiefs to stop providing daily updates on the location of new infections. Instead they will be provided on a Friday in a weekly round-up.
Thirty six new UK cases were announced yesterday (Wednesday) bringing the grand total to 87 people.
A former director at Public Health England said the move to weekly updates should be reconsidered to allow the public to make informed decisions.
In related news, the Government is putting in place contingency plans, should the virus outbreak become widespread, to close Parliament for up to three months to stop 650 potential "super spreaders". Which gives This R…

Pig stalkers, BoJo's Jet and the Zara contrast print dress

Socks off.

Do you remember the childhood rhyme which runs: "This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed at home..."? You do. Well this story is the remixed version.

A man in America called the police when a 'persistent pig' followed him home from a train station, it is reported.

He called the North Ridgeville Police Station in Ohio at 5.26am on Saturday claiming the pig was following him and, understandably, the officers thought he must be inebriated (the man that is, not the pig).

However, on arriving at the 'scene' they found a completely sober man who was indeed being followed by a piggy stalker. One of the officers managed to 'coerce' the pig into his police car (no jokes please) and brought the pig back to the station where he was locked in one of the dog kennels. The pig has since been reunited with his owner.

Time for some news headlines and today it has been announced Sweden has distributed a 'be prepared for war' leafle…

Holidaymakers marooned in a sandstorm and the UK public loses its Eurovision vote

FROM the British tourists stranded in the Canary Islands thanks to a Sahara sandstorm, to the public banned from voting for the UK entry to Eurovision, This Reporter brings you the news headlines on Monday 24th February 2020.

Holidaymakers have been left stranded at airports in the Canary Islands after a Sahara sandstorm left the destination coated with dust, and reduced visibility for flying.
Flights from locations including Gran Canaria and Lanzarote were grounded due to the weather conditions leaving passengers forced to sit, and even sleep, on the dirty airport floors.
Holidayers complained about poor customer service when it came to receiving information on flights and organising temporary accommodation, with the general feeling amongst the British being, it was an absolute outrage they were having to extend their holiday by several days.
As reward posters go up on lampposts for the immediate return of commonsense, it has been revealed that despite the recent storms battering the…

Cocktail rings, the sexist book prize and feel good children's literature

"Thundercats are on the move, Thundercats are loose..."

Hello and welcome to the past where suit-clad dinosaurs roam the earth, sexism reigns supreme and women are castigated for stating the bleedin' obvious. There is a silver lining, of sorts. We get to wear cocktail rings again.

So first to the good news, and as this reporter was saying, cocktail rings are making a comeback, big time. The fashion pack has declared an end to minimalist jewellery and instead the mantra is very much "go big or go home".

The rings, which usually feature a colourful gem like an emerald, have been given a mighty great boost in popularity again since the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, wore Princess Diana's Aquamarine cocktail ring to her evening wedding celebrations.

Try the Ophelia cocktail ring, available from Aspinal, for size. But whatever your choice, do ensure the gem is sufficiently gargantuan that its light shines as brightly as the ruby in the Thundercats' sword.…

The porn star set to topple Trump and the horse suit by Chloe

Is it an indictment of the holes in America's political system or the fact we have learnt so much post-Harvey Weinstein, that the most likely person to knock President Donald Trump off his narcissistic perch is a porn star going by the name of Stormy Daniels? Or perhaps, as many are joyfully claiming, it is because this porn star has become a feminist hero - her voice, rather than her body, her super power.

There have been murmurings for some time of how Trump employed the services of Stormy, real name Stephanie Clifford, to provide some bedroom entertainment - shall we say - shortly after his wife Melania gave birth to his youngest son back in 2006.

But it is only now as Stormy, as we shall call her, has announced she is suing the former American Apprentice star for slamming a non-disclosure agreement on her, that we are seeing just how pivotal and important a figure this adult film star could become in what happens to Trump next.

As anyone who follows the misogynistic transgress…
