Polls closed just minutes ago but with the expertise of the finest countermonkey's have projected a landslide win for former WWBN Mad Mad World Host Dunena Reid.

Exit poll results give a strong 80% majority result for the newcomer with some even choosing to vote for exotic animals then give a vote to Frump in what has to be his worst result ever.

The Magical world today woke to a flurry of Werks and stories after last night's broadcast of Dunena Reid's Weird Weird World hinted, quite strongly that recently crowned Houglass Magazine's Person of the Year Dunena Reid, was set to enter the race for the 2012 American Magical Elections with no lesser sight then the Minister's position currently held by Ronald Frump.

Speaking to the Ministry this morning reporters where told that while some paperwork may have been received it was after the weekend cut-off and would not be looked at until the subsequent week at the earliest.. unless it had fallen on the desk of one F. Blake in which one just had to hope that it would be filed at all.

Considered a possible hoax a interview with Producer and year long associate of Mr Reid Benjamin Jefferson led to the following statement "The hell I know? Trust me man I'm usually the last to find out these things"

More on this story and other top breaking news including the protest by Interweb giants Woozle against Muggle proposed internet filtering laws, after this break.

Yes ladies the roamers where true that none other then high flung socialite and darling of the European Ministry Fifi LaRoux has been sighted in Melbourne, Australia which has recently been named the worlds most livable city for a second time.

While none have stated what brought on the arrival of Miss LaRoux there's been no question that the world famous Hit Witch has made no secret of her visit with roamers of a behind closed doors meeting with the Minister for Magic himself before dining out at the exclusive Vue de Monde for drinks. Seemingly at home in the city Fifi underwent a tour of the Auror department before attending the midwinter launch of the Matacore 'Enchantment' line of fashion robes. Speaking exclusively to WWBN Fifi states that she was very pleased to be in Australia and would not commit to any return dates nor roamers that her visit had anything to do with attempts to influence the Australian Ministry to re-think it's ties to Ronald Frump's ministry.

Witch Weekly's exclusive Interview with the well known Hit Witch hits store shelves Monday.

It seems that exposing the Minister of Magic's secret love shack was not enough to keep the host of WWBN's Top Rating News and Current Affairs show Dunena's Mad Mad World set for long. Now with the reveal of Pottermore the controversial host has moved to point fingers at not only the American Minister for Magic but that of a number of major Magical Ministries around the world accusing them of taking bribes to allow unfettered access to the Magical World. Outrage from the claims have lead to a call for a full investigation into Mr Reid's accusations. All Eyes are now on the Various Ministers and how they will respond to the latest revelations from the Man himself, Dunena Reid of Mad Mad World.

After the break WWBN-UK Continues it's round the clock coverage of the 2011 Glastonbury Festival, taking place at Worthy Farm in the UK where our own Cherry Clinger is keeping abreast of the top stories and gossip at iconic music festival with interviews with big names and newcomers alike in the Wrock scene including a exclusive with DJ Noiseworks and former one time Weird Sister Nathan Wright.

"In Global News today many Muggles the world over logged on to the unveiling of 'Pottermore' last night, a new co-production between 'JK', Warner Brothers and Muggle Game Man..Man..Manufacturer Sony. Promising to give Muggles and Wizards alike a whole new experience many prominent figures in the magical world have come out damning what they see as yet another crass profit making exercise at the expense of the magical community.

One Hogwarts teacher has stated that since this 'Pottermore thing' started they have been inundated with well over one thousand owls from worried parents, former students and others wishing to know if it would mean Muggles would be allowed to study at Hogwarts or.. worse the school was to give up it's long held stance amongst the only schools to not have it's own interweb network.

While many in the Wizarding World are concerned Woozle today speaking to WWBN-Japan was quoted as "Not at all Worried" while reminding Wizards and Muggles alike that "whatever Pottermore promises to be there is no doubt that with Sony it will only be a matter of time before hackers get it".

In other news the Australian Ministry of Magic has moved to deny any connection to a self-declaired witch jailed for recklessly causing serious injury and dangerous driving. The Australian Minister for Magic was quoted as calling the woman a 'Bloody Idiot' while reminding that no matter what world one thinks they belong to, the laws of Australia still apply.

"WWBN Today officially announced that it has apologized to American Minister for Magic Ronald Frump for allegations made about him on flagship nightly talk show Dunena's Mad Mad World hosted on WWBN. While the Minister was brought into a furor over recent alligations surrounding his private life it was the revelation of his secret Tuscan Villa that has lead to red faces and claims to 'Sue WWBN for every knurd it has'. Amid the turmoil ratings for WWBN's radio talk show have skyrocketed making it more popular then 'Clives Charms Hour'. Speaking to the head of WWBN it was quoted that 'Whoever Dunena is they're on to a good thing, and might just be the Wizarding Worlds answer to the Muggle World's 'Julian Assange'"

Marty stood on his balcony, the suit jacket he wore earlier tossed on the bed, his shirt sleeves rolled up and a glass of wine in hand. He leaned against the balcony entry frame as Dominic explained what it was he had in mind. It had been a few days since the events on the bridge and Marty was still in Paris instead of back in his apartment in New York sending out his C.V. for jobs.

++++++

He knew something strange had happened on that bridge and a few other times as memories surfaced that night. Once he no longer felt queasy, he sat down and pulled out his HTC to do a search only to find it was not quite in the shape it had been when he left the room. Looking over at Victor, who had poured them both a stiff drink, Marty saw him looking a bit awkward. "Spill," was all he said. "I don't care how long it takes but what happened out there?"

Victor thought for a moment and decided the man deserved some honesty so he explained as simply as he could what Michel had attempted to do and what he had successfully done to get Marty out of there as well as why he had not come to Marty's aid sooner. Victor knew that if Dominic was really upset about this, he could have Marty obliviated later, which he did not tell Marty.

By the time Victor finished, Marty was on the netbook he had purchased after he realized he was going to be there more than a few hours and began researching. He first looked up the spell Victor said Michel had tried to use on him. After reading the information, he downed the whiskey in his glass and poured another, hands shaking just a bit as the adrenaline subsided and realization began settling in. From there, he went from one source to another in his typical methodical fashion and when he was done, he had no doubts that all Victor told him had been true and began to very quickly connect many dots that had not connected before. He needed to talk to Fifi, that much he knew for sure.

By the time he knew that there was another 'science' out there there that he had not been aware of, Dominic had arrived, Victor having reported the incident immediately. It was at that time, Dominic asked what had brought on the attack and if Marty knew why Michel would want to have killed him. Marty explained the conversation that had gone on while Victor had been distracted dueling. Dominic's reaction had rather surprised Marty. "You want me to WHAT?" Marty asked in shock. "You want me to go back and work for the woman who just tried to have me killed? If you want me dead, wouldn't it be easier just to do it now?"

Dominic couldn't help but grin at Marty's reaction. Yes, it probably did sound crazy to the American Muggle but there was a plan. This was Dominic, of course he had a plan and he set out the basics of it to Marty. Marty listened, obvious that his mind was going over all the possibilities and had not committed to it but did not reject it. "Dominic, I have questions that I need answers to before I say yes or no. If I'm going to make this decision, I want to make it with as much clear thinking and determination as I can. I'd like a couple of days to consider." Dominic nodded and stood to leave, suggesting Marty get some sleep before trying to figure it out further. At Marty's request for some books that Dominic thought would be helpful, Dominic said there were a few and promised to send them over after lunch.

+++++++

Since then, Marty had been pouring over whatever information he could find, meeting with Dominic occasionally to ask questions and clarify some points and then this afternoon, Dominic had taken him to the Ministry offices and gave him a brief tour with some explanations and demonstrations of some things Marty had specifically requested as they might prove helpful to what was about to happen if Marty agreed. They both knew that this was not one of those movies, as Fifi had said at the airport. People died. Marty almost did once already.

The initial shock of things had subsided, Marty was a bit more knowledgeable about Muggles and spells, charms, floo networks, apparating and owls. He knew he could communicate with them through the floo network but not travel and that yes, he could use owls for communication. He learned the secret of McQueen and her classification of a Squib and that he was a Muggle. Marty had asked Dominic to detail what he needed Marty to do and when he finished, Marty turned back from the balcony and began to tell Dominic what he would like to have if he were to accomplish this.

"If I am going to do this, there's some things that would make the odds a bit more favorable for us," Marty began. "I'm going to go into McQueen with a few demands if she truly wants me back. It's a big gamble but if she agrees, it will make things easier for us. If I can get her to arrange an office for me with both a window and a fire place, can you set up a floo connection with it? Also, I am going to request her to allow me to hire an assistant of my own choosing. It's been an issue before and I suspect she'll give in on that one. I want it to be one of your people." Marty paused and added, "I'm sure you are quite able to create an very Muggle background for one of them. If anything goes wrong and I can't get word to you, they can. If I need to send files, information, whatever, with their ability to apparate and floo and fly, it's a lot faster than depending on the postal systems between the countries." Marty took a sip of his wine while he let Dominic digest his suggestions so far. "And I'll admit, it is a bit of insurance for me. I'm not magical. I can't do a shielding spell or fire back with whatever."

Marty turned back to stare out at the view of Paris at night. "There's one other thing, Dominic," he finally said, his voice quiet and serious. "McQueen is unaware that my parents are still alive and living quietly in New Jersey. She never asked, I never volunteered. We never had the kind of staff relationship where she asked about family and all. I've taken a couple of days over the years for funerals at various times and from the way she spoke on a few occasions, I think she believes they're deceased." Marty paused to take another sip of his wine, a thought striking him. "Come to think of it, I can't think of any staff that I know there that has any kind of family or partner. Seems she likes to keep loners on staff. Anyway, if anything should go wrong, I want you to make sure that they're looked after and kept safe for the time they have left."

With that last request, Marty waited to hear if Dominic would accept them. He watched the older man who never flinched on any request though Marty did notice an eyebrow raise here and there as he detailed each one and explained the reasonings for them. Marty had thought he would be nervous waiting for Dominic's reply and in some ways he was but not like he thought he would be. Over the past few days, Marty had had to come to terms with a lot of things he never considered before. The existence of magic. The realization things were not what he had thought them to be at Smoking Llama for a long time. The ideas of being used by his ex-boss and the events of Halloween night. Now, he finally understood comments Fifi had made to him about 'his kind'.
