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'"

Olivia was beginning to hate New Zealand, and she had the feeling it was mutual by the Earthquakes that had plagued her since arriving at her Grandmother's house. The first one had struck while she had been sitting on the toilet, While not the most dignified it was at least safe and her Dad would have probably got a chuckle out of it if he wasn't busy being worried sick. It was unnerving being back again, while she'd seen plenty of the damage from the tv news there was something eery about walking around some streets where everything seemed to be just like before, then others where the concrete was cracked and buildings missing or covered in supports from the repairs that where being done. For the most part there really hadn't been time to sight see, Gran had never really trusted her, always the 'odd one' so rather then being free to roam and show Storm where she'd grown up the pair had been stuck watching tv, playing bingo and the various other boring pursuits of the old aged to the point where she couldn't stand it anymore.

At least she'd be able to do magic soon, she was counting down the days until her birthday, seventeen and finally she could be a real part of the wizarding world, no longer having to hide her wand when she went home and risk getting into trouble for practicing magic. It was something to hold onto when the house was invaded with long-lost relatives Olivia didn't remember and others who had always picked on her for being small and different. Now she knew she was different and they would never in a million years believe all the things she could do. Christmas had passed in indifference of food and 'chatting' to Storm over the noise of the other guests, her Grandmother seemed to have invited the entire family though thankfully her Mother and new husband where not on the guest list. Today however Olivia was alone as she caught a bus to downtown, she'd gotten up early and left Storm a note so she wouldn't worry or tell her Dad. Olivia felt like a rat for leaving Storm at her Grans alone but there was some things Olivia had to do for herself and this was one of them.

Two blocks from the school Olivia got off, putting her bag over her shoulder she thought of all the times she'd sat at the bus stop debating running away forever, the graffiti had been painted over, somewhere her name was written in marker under the dull green paint. Free or not Olivia couldn't help the feel of anxiety as she crossed the road and made the short walk to Stoat, the school for lack of a better word that she'd spent the worst years of her life attending. Where it not for a unanswered question Olivia might never have returned but being in New Zealand again, feeling the cool air from the mountains made it impossible for her to not wonder what had become of her old friend Zoe. For all the letters she had sent after leaving she'd never got a single one in reply. Despite her hopes the school wasn't a hole in the ground, actually from what she could see it hadn't changed a bit except for a new extension to one side. Scuffing her boots on the path she tried to recognize the few people that where visible from the windows before going inside and hitting the bell for attention. It was a anxious wait, the plain room host to bad memories she would rather not think about even as she heard the soft scruff of soles on the tile floor.

"Yes can I help you?"
Olivia frowned, the face was unfamiliar.. this was going to be a problem. Signing /hello I'm here to see Doctor Mitchell/ she waited as the women stared at her before babbling a apology. Olivia waited in the uncomfortable silence until another nurse arrived, this one she did know and gave a awkward wave.
"Olivia? Olivia Watson?" Olivia nodded and then signed her way though a brief interview of how she was and what had happened since she had left, keeping it simple to the point that she'd moved to Australia and was back because she wanted to know what happened to her friend.
"Oh.." Olivia blinked as the woman's face went from concern to a more stern appearance. "You know the rules Olivia, we cannot give out personal information of former patents even if we wanted to". While the woman's voice was clear there was something about the way she had said 'former' that raised hairs on her neck. Zoe had always spoken about running away, but that didn't feel like it fitted either. / Please? / Olivia signed / She was my friend.. I have to know / . Playing the emotional card had always worked on Nurse Mildred but the woman glared. "That girl was no good Olivia and you know it, now Doctor Mitchell is not here today but if you come back tomorrow I'm sure he would be very pleased to see you again. Olivia had seen that look before, it was one too many of the staff shared and as good as a admittance. Zoe was dead, Olivia thought the worlds would hit her stronger then they had but it was like all the years between had created a sense of numbness around it. / No it's fine / she just signed before gabbing her bag and leaving, the nurse's words to stay still ringing in her ear as she walked out the door and into the humid air.

So that was that then, Olivia tried to think on the last time she'd seen Zoe as she walked to the bus stop, probably right here on the last time she had caught the bus to go home to her parents. Olivia sat and thought, she didn't cry but when the bus came she paid the fare wondering if she should bother Storm with what she had learned, or was it better to keep it to herself? Either way she wanted to be home, home with her Dad and Australia where it would be safe. Storm would understand, Olivia hoped she would anyway. New Zealand was beautiful from the air but from her level it was just bad memories and boring people. The most interesting person in the entire country was gone and Olivia didn't have to know the hows and whens to guess, the Nurses' expression told enough that it wasn't a earthquake or disaster that had taken Zoe's life. For a moment she wondered if there was something she could have done or said but of course it was a natural but pointless train of thought, whatever could have been done was a long time ago and there was only the here and now.

Arriving back at her Grandmother's she ducked her head to avoid a scolding for her disappearing trick, only to find her Grandmother going on about her Mum's Mother who Olivia had never met. Little did she care of the stories of her grandmother who had died long before she was born, though mention of her unlikely appearance one day in the small village where she had grown up might have sounded odd had Olivia's mind not been elsewhere. Moving the old cat off her chair Olivia wondered what her Gran would have thought of the pigmy puffs that where currently being minded by her Dad, it was a slightly bright thought for a day that already felt too long. Olivia hated talk of her Mum's side of the family, ever since she'd found out the truth about herself it just annoyed her to hear about how her Mum who had refused to see what was right in front of her was doing in her denial of a life. Annoying or not it was a distraction from the other thoughts on her mind, so much so that by the time they had finished lunch Olivia had forgotten about calling her Dad or telling Storm, it was her birthday in a couple of days and then they where going to go visit Storm's Nonna and Olivia was excited about that part of the trip if nothing else. So she'd keep calm and carry on as the t-shirt's said. If nothing else she could remember her old friend, she didn't much know anyone else who would have cared that Zoe was no more, so she would. It wasn't much, but it was something.
