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.

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.

This has been Kim Sparkle for WWBN News at Five"

"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'"

Hourglass Magazine's Person of the Year
Countdown to the 2011 Person of the Year

10. Benjamin Jefferson

39, American, Squb
The Little known Producer of WWBN's Dunena's Mad Mad World, a squib Benjamin has made his name working in the shadow of famous faces until in 2011 he teamed up to produce a late night show hosted out of New York that would become a worldwide sensation.

9. Greta Greenwich

31, American, Pureblood
A well respected reporter for The Global Voice, in 2011 it was her investigations into the dealings of American Minister for Magic Ronald Frump, and the investigation surrounding what is believed to be a conspiracy by one 3rd party to discredit French Hit-Witch Fifi LaRoux in a Arson attempt against the life of well known radio personality Dunena Reid.

8. DJ Noiseworks

32, Australian, Halfblood
2011 was the year that Nathan Wright burst onto the scene after a cult following in Australia and Europe the DJ and talented Guitarist first graced our shores alongside Spellomatic for the Weird Sisters Avada Karina Tour of the USA. After making a home for himself in the club scene of New York Nathan Wright also graced the stage at Glastonbury with Australian wrock band Silencio before returning to Australia alongside Angus Scott of Spellomatic for a summer tour.

7. Jamie Savage

42, England, Halfblood
The Sports world was shocked last year at the news of famous British Quiddich Champion Jamie Savage's fall from grace. However in 2011 Word is that the Chaser has been working hard to repair his image and taken to a professional role of training the next generation of Quiddich Stars for Italy. With the 2012 Wizarding World Games coming up next year no doubt Jamie will be one to watch.

6. Cherry Clinger

50, American, Pureblood
"The Hostest With the Mostest" thought out the Wizarding World there's no doubt that Cherry Clinger continues to capture the hearts and minds of those devoted to WWBN. From her interview with the Malfroy Family in lead up to the release of the final part of the Harry Potter film series to the never to be forgotten live broadcast with Fifi LaRoux and Dominic Benoit (and who could forget Ronald Frump?) that transformed opinions and garnished a entirely new generation of viewers and dispelled doubts that Cherrys talent ended at her 'assets'.

5. Fifi LaRoux

34, French, Pureblood
Fashion Icon and Darling of the French Ministry of Magic Fifi LaRoux's name has been all over our airwaves, from little known Auror to Famous Hit Wizard often seen on the arm of French Minister for Magic Dominic Benoit it is her outrageous antics that have won supporters both in her home country and abroad. With high profile interviews on The Cherry Clinger Show leading to her rescue of a innocent Muggle during a brawl caused by rioters outside the Ministry of Magic others have been less positive about the French Witch - none the least being the American Minister for Magic.

4. Dominic Benoit

73, French, Pureblood
Before this year few had heard of the French Minister for Magic, with domestic troubles at home overshadowing international developments it was on the level of a shock to American Audiences to view the heated exchange between French Minister and 'bad boy' Dominic Benoit and American Minister for Magic Ronald Frump. With the Muggle Eurozone in crisis it has been the careful management by Dominic Benoit that has come to be a shining star after his veto to allow the Galleon standard to be linked to the Euro causing the Magical World to remain immune to the worst of Europe's troubles.

3. Ronald Frump

74, American, Pureblood
Who could forget Ronald Frump this year? From a solid campaign win in 2010 based on traditional values it turned to be Ronald Frump's own taste for the ladies that lead him into strife in 2011. With the revelation of his affair with Ms. Lainy Bustiere a prominent purest alongside allegations of selling out the Magical world it was the report of his connection to the Arson attack against WWBN-New York Radio Host Dunena Reid in a attempt to plant the blame on French Hitwizard Fifi LaRoux that has left his government on the edge of collapse with polling results showing him unlikely to win any upcoming election... if he can keep the knives from his own party members at bay to last so long.

2. Marty Harper

50, American, Muggle
On the 17th of November the Wizarding World was shocked to see the attack against a unarmed Muggle during a scuffle that broke out at the Fight The Darkness Rally outside the American Ministry of Magic. Broadcast globally on The Cherry Clinger Show Marty Harper found himself thrust into the Magical World's Limelight after trying to defend the image of French Hitwizard Fifi LaRoux against allegations connecting the woman and American Minister for Magic Ronald Frump. While it is not known how Marty Harper came to be at the rally he became the target of Anti-Muggle elements within the crowd before being arrested by the NYPD.

2011 PERSON OF THE YEAR
1. Dunena Reid

41, American, Pureblood
Radio Shock-Jock on WWBN Dunena Reid's fame skyrocketed in 2011 from a relatively quiet career to be a major player in the Wizarding World thanks to his #1 rating program Dunena's Weird Weird World. Likened to the Muggle Julian Assange between stories of The Sky Falling In and 'Goat God Man' the late night conspiracy show has been a surprising source of revelations about the Politics of the Wizarding World, breaking stories about the Minister for Magic's secret hideaway with Ms. Lainy Bustiere and allegations of 'selling out' the Magical world with the release of Pottermore, a Co-Woozle and Sony funded project to allow Muggles to explore the magical world online. It was however Dunena's pubic actions that brought the most heat on the man, Calling a Day of Action against Ronald Frump's ministry his Fight The Darkness Protest quickly got out of hands with wild allegations against well known public figures. While it is not clear just how much truth where in his allegations and stories of Targeting by Ronald Frump's ministry there is no doubt that Dunena Reid has aligned himself closely with the winds of public opinion calling for a more open and transparent proceedings in the Magical World.

To this in 2011 we salute you!
