This week we spend time talking about the most important event of the week, a veritable prize fight of White House press briefings: Stephen Miller v. CNN's Jim Acosta. Next we take a less-than-happy look at news of a policy paper from the back offices of the European Union about its desire for command over a three branch armed forces with its own budget as well as a brief look at the sheer number of (ex-?)communists in EU leadership positions and a quick discussion about the merits of the House of Lords. Next it's a look at Bill Kristol's revealing tweet about renaming the Republican Party and a deeper look at the old guard of the liberalisation of the Conservative Party, then a look at Bedfordshire Police's supine multiculti diversity outreach tweets, the leaked heretical memo sent round at Google and more psychoanalysis of J. K. Rowling's deep struggle with Harry Potter's implicit whiteness. Finally, we have our brows surgically lowered to talk about Robert Pattinson's refusal to masturbate a dog for a movie.
