Whoops. Carelessness on my part. Still, symptomatic of the Trumpmare that a spoof can, in the new era of Trump, be so readily mistaken for actuality.

As for the wanking, there is no chance of me managing ten in a day.

Almighty battle coming in the US Republican party - as John McCain calls Russia hacking "an act of war"

Goes on to say that no US Congress will abandon Ukraine. Trump will have to face down his own party to end sanctions on Russia

This is serious stuff. McCain very popular in the party. Trump will have to declare war on his own party. Which he's done before, of course

SARAH PALIN APPOINTED AS SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ADVISER, PROMISES TO GET RID OF CLIMATE CHANGE ‘HYSTERIA’

The American President-elect Donald Trump has officially announced this morning that Sarah Palin is to become the new Science and Technology Adviser.

Critics of the administration have already voiced their concerns over the choice of the former Alaska governor, known to be a fierce climate change denier, to lead the White House Office of Science and Technology of the United States.

Some scientists openly fear that Sarah Palin could be the end of the science establishment as we know it and would relegate the Office of Science and Technology “to the dark ages”.

“I mean, this is scary as hell” explains climatologist Dan B. Evans from the University of California, Berkeley.

“The woman claimed in an interview in 2009 that God killed the dinosaurs and that he had sent the flood to purge the dinosaurs off of the earth,” he warned, visibly concerned.

“With Sarah Palin as director of the Office of Science and Technology, we are definitely stepping into la-la land” he adds.

I understand that Trump has asked Rebecca Ferguson to sing at his inauguration ceremony and she has replied that she will, on condition that she gets to perform Billie Holiday's Strange Fruit.

Getting turned over by an X Factor contestant before your inauguration doesn't bode well. I think Trump will give her the thumbs up he has no deeply held views on racial politics other than as a campaigning tool.

I'm not familiar with this young ladies tunes m'lud but I like her already.

I still haven't quite got my head round the fact this clown is going to be President...

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
The dishonest media likes saying that I am in Agreement with Julian Assange - wrong. I simply state what he states, it is for the people....

I state what he states...but I'm not in agreement.

Republicans in Congress are going up the wall. Pundits are overcompensating and trying not to look churlish about Trump making dubious comparisons to Reagan about how he might make a good president. Matthew Paris in Newsnight said enough, the man's idiot and the US system will contain him.
