Update from the 2012 WWBN Election Newsroom...

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'"

BD: 10/11/1938

Age: 73

Status: Pureblood

Occupation: French Minister for Magic

Characters who RP this NPC: Fifi LaRoux, Marty Harper

Eye Colour: Grey

Hair Colour: Grey

Appearance: A kindly looking man Dominic is thin and 'springly' seemingly being of endless energy (or at least in the public eye) and more then a few 'pick me up' potions over the years. While it's said that the years have been for the most part kind there's no doubt that it has more to do with a careful selection of fine suits and robes then a matter of mere 'chance'.

Personality: Dominic is a keenly reserved man, a former head of the French Auror Department he's been though, seen and often knows much more then he's willing to let on. To his children and detractors Dominic is considered aloof, uncaring and self-indulgent, too focused on the 'bigger picture' to care of matters closer to home. There's no question that quite a few careers have been made and broken on trying to explain the actions and mind of the French Minister, his personal habits being well known for exuberant parties and constant travel abroad - often in the company of the young and ever so female Fifi LaRoux. His Centralist Party in the Ministry of Magic has been known for pushing unity both in the EU and for Muggle and other-species relations with France being the first to give vampires full equal rights in the law. A elder statesmen of the Magical World Dominic has so far managed to capture the younger audience though his popularity and 'candor' made famous though interviews on local and international broadcasts in the Magical World.

Born in the city of Marseille to Yvette and Gaubert Benoult Dominic comes from a long and well respected line of Pureblood French Wizards native to the lands since 600bc. It is said that even from the beginning the Benoult's have had their hands in the rich political landscape from advising Kings to the formation of the first Guild of Magic Practitioners who would one day become the modern day French Ministry of Magic. The Benoult name long becoming a mark of respect to those both in-and out of the know of the magical arts. However Dominic was not born to a world of peace and against the wishes of some his family chose to abandon Marseille in 1940 for war was upon it..and indeed they did just in time for no sooner had they settled in England then the city was occupied by Germany.

Deciding that it would do their son well Dominic remained in England, attending Hogwarts while back home his Father managed to seal a deal for Italy, East and West Germany to repay in money for the lives and damage they had caused to the city their family had called home. While his father, a former Minister renowned for his sharp voice and uncanny political maneuvering was well known for the most part Dominic was an unremarkable young man who took to his studies with care and was never one to stand out in a crowd. Indeed most of his Professors did agree that he was quiet but hard working, and seemed to have a natural affinity for a career in the Ministry of Magic. So it did surprise his colleges that Dominic chose to focus his attention to gaining a position in the Auror Department, unaware that they where of the Auror Department being a natural stepping stone to advancement in the Ministry itself.

It seemed a good time to be a Auror and at 21 Dominic returned home to France to marry his childhood sweetheart Inès d'Esnambuc which came as no suprise to anyone seeing as Inès had been betrothed to Dominic since the age of five as part of a settlement between the two bloodlines. A doting husband the pair where blessed with four children before the onset of the First Wizarding War threatened to overrun Europe in it's entirety. Like many young wizards Dominic joined in the service to fight the dark followers of Lord Voldermort under the belief that his wife and children would remain safe in France.

Little did anyone know just how far Voldermorts influence had spread. His father, a staunch supporter of the Ministry of Magic and vocal opponent of Lord Voldermort who publicly likened the man to the Muggle Worlds Hitler who had done such evil to his land was the first to fall. Death Eaters seemingly taking pleasure at the destruction of his name, even to the point of using his own wife against him. Dominic of course was unaware, apart from the grief at losing his father he didn't notice when his loving wife slipped Baneberry poison into his wine while under an imperius curse. Alas on that day his wits where faster then his heart and Dominic did not know what had happened until his loving wife did collapse to the floor after taking toast of the poisonous brew.

There are stories still told to today of the vengeance of Dominic's wrath, while in England the Order of the Phoenix did rise in France it was the name of one man that did put a tremble in the heart of Death Eaters, as the new Head of the Auror Department Dominic found the shadows and strategy did give him the challenge his life had sorely lacked in youth. There was little time for mourning or for his children as he learnt the arts of politics to become the youngest Minister of Magic at the tender age of 42 which he has managed to hold though a force of will, good luck and careful management - not the least helped by his name, 'war hero' status though his guidance of the French Ministry of Magic during the 2nd Wizarding War and being the most popular Minister for Magic in over a decade.
