Breaking News: Ahead of his impeachment as U.S.
President, (about which he tweeted, "Only three guys
have ever been impeached, so it's something I can be
proud of!"), Donald Trump, in today launching his
new American Space Force, has instructed his
attorney Rudy Giuliano to immediately organise
that Trump's name be changed by deed poll to
Flash Gordon. Leader Of The House Nancy
Pelosi, who grimly applauded Mr Trump's decision,

Space News: December 2019:Most of the world may not have experienced a white Christmas this year, but ‘cosmic snowflakes’ were recently spotted in space by Nasa's Spitzer telescope, proving a long suspected theory that life as we know it on Earth is under threat from these Snowflakes. "They are everywhere", said one NASA spokesman. "One of them turned up at my daughter's school fireworks display claiming his pet hamster had died of a heart attack because of the bangs. Another one complained that the fireworks were actually happening at night when the sudden lights from the rockets reflected off his bald head and made him look "not his best". There is historical evidence that they have been among us for hundreds of years. A recent historical document stated that one of William Wallace's generals refused to fight at the Battle Of Stirling, because he had broken a nail, had forgotten to floss, and furthermore, "did'nt like the way the King of England Edward Longshanks was looking at him. and that the blue woad clashed with his skin tone, which for him was the last straw".

Climate Crisis News: A cow, whose name has been
changed to Bessie, to protect her anonimity, explained what happened. "I was hanging around in the corner of my field, chewing the cud as you do, minding my own bit of grass, when suddenly this hysterical bloke jumped out from behind a bush and screamed at me for causing global warming by farting. I was so surprised I let one off and unfortunately covered this guy's Jesus sandals in a large cow-pat. Look, I'm already a vegetarian and I don't drive a car, so I think I'm doing my bit.

U.K. December, 2019 General Election:
Revealed today. After being trounced at the British election, Jeremy Corbyn immediately announced plans to defect back to Russia. However, speaking over his gold-plated telephone from his Beluga caviar-filled jacuzzi on his private jet, Russian Premiere Vladimir Putin explained why this will never be a reality, "Nah, he's too left-wing for us. Leave him to dig in his carrots on his allotment, and he can imagine he's in a Gulag in Siberia and it's still 1919...or whatever fantasy suits him next. Donald's here in the jacuzzi with me. Wanna speak to him? No? Well, catch him on Twitter. Dasvidaniya, baby"
