If, at the end of last year, someone had earnestly informed this mole that within 12 months, all the good celebrities would die, Britain would leave the EU, and the US would elect reality TV star Donald Trump as its President, I would have asked them if they had ingested any of the more colourful mushrooms that sprout around my humble abode.

But those were different times, and I a different mole.

Now, as 2016 draws to a close, the world finally seems to be collapsing in on itself as the self-proclaimed 2020 presidential candidate (and, so I hear, popular rapper) Kanye West enters Trump Tower.

It’s not clear if he’s meeting with the President Elect in person or not, but it seems likely. Either way, your mole is concerned. See you in the underground bunker in 2017.

Update: They met, they posed, photographs were taken. It was sickening.

I'm a mole, innit.
