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 Th

The inside scoop on Meghan and Harry's wedding - all the action before it's even happened

Fantastic news. We have all been invited to a wedding, and not just any old wedding but the royal wedding of the year (sorry Princess Eugenie) between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. This is what the big day - 19th May, if you still need to jot it down in your filofax - will look like. The girls will all get ready at Meghan's house, taking it in turns to marvel at her dress, by an avant garde British designer we will all pretend we have heard of. We will watch back-to-back episodes of Suits, quaffing glasses of Kombucha, so we can exclaim over how far she has come, all the while trying to reassure Kate Middleton we cannot see the baby sick down her brand new pleat detail dress  from Reiss. (We can). The boys will meanwhile be round Harry's gaff, stuffing themselves on venison burgers and Kettle Chips, before stripping down for a last game of naked snooker - for old time's sake. Reminiscing about ill-advised fancy dress costumes, past girlfriends with posh, fancy names

Theresa May's girls' night in and ice-cream flavoured plimsoles

The fashion world is in a two-and-eight. It has inconceivably come up with a trend which is the complete antithesis of everything it stands for - ice-cream. Let's be honest, no one in the fashion industry has eaten since 1997, subsisting on fresh air and the occasional whiff of Lancome watermelon Juicy Tube (because they're back). Never mind the veritable Pandora's box of worms the issue rears up for the lactose intolerant, and the vegans, who have risen up like a Samuria army since the clock struck midnight on first of January. But fear not, this ice-cream trend is nothing to do with consuming delicious frozen cream (sadly). Instead it is about the chosen pastel colour palette for this spring, leading on to summer 2018. Melting their way down runways there have been strawberry ice-cream coloured jackets from Celine, Acne Studios have offered up pistachio co-ords, Chanel have served us vanilla wafer coloured suits. There have been blueberry swirl skirts at Versace and

"Summer dreams ripped at the seams" - The day we should have Brexit

TODAY - Friday 29th March - was to have been The Day -  the day we Brexited from the European Union. If all had gone according to - if there had actually been a - plan. Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg were scheduled to be there at Dover cliff edge, gardening shears at the ready, to ceremoniously sever, together, all ties with our continental neighbours. In manner of some warped version of the bride and bridegroom cutting into their first slice of wedding cake. Former fireplace salesman, turned Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson would have led the military salute as Salvation Army brass bands from across the country, on pain of death, led a rousing rendition of "Jerusalem", followed by a blast of the Grease Megamix. That's the news of what didn't pan out this week, so what actually did happen? We heard Nigel Farage compared to Blackadder's Field Marshall Haig when Guy Verhofstadt questioned why he was sat in European Parliament and not out on the 200 mile Mar

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&#
