Justin Tru-don’t

Justin Trudeau is considering skipping the United States—Mexico—Canada Agreement (USMCA) summit this week. Apparently he’s too busy watching at-home yoga videos and trying to grow a real beard.    So it turns out the US—Mexico—Canada Agreement isn’t much of an agreement. It’s not clear if Trump will show up to have awkward chat with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador…and if he [...]

The hero we need

Facebook is set to enter a $76 million sales slump after some 90 advertisers boycotted the social media network in protest of its failure to deal with hate speech and harmful content. It’s safe to say Mark’s not having a good week, although perhaps a like here on one of the photos where he pretends to have a pulse could still save [...]

Poll-er Opposites

Biden is leading in the polls for this November. And if there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that a well-known establishment democrat who’s leading Trump in the polls by a large margin (and seems by all means the obvious choice) is a winning candidate.    Just kidding. In a lot of ways, Biden’s early lead feels like a complete repeat [...]

Lime scooters to replace Covid-19 pandemic

0
If you’ve ever visited a European city such as Paris or Berlin, you’ll have noticed how e-scooters dominate the pavements and roads. These ‘Limes’ offer a unique way for sight-seers to get around for fun. Although, they work less well as a means to get home after a heavy night of bar-crawling as they’ll leave you with a never-ending bill and a [...]

An bike advert was recently been banned in the country for “inciting fear and suffering.” Note: it’s unclear whether the advert caused the national of France more or less distress than Prime Minister Édouard Philippe’s evolving [...]

Trump’s Infinite Playlist

0
Even when you’re Donald Trump, you can’t always get what you want. That’s especially true when what you want involved playing the song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at political rallies.    The song, by the Rolling Stones, has become a staple at Trump rallies since his first presidential run four years ago. Why? Apparently there’s just something about Mick [...]

Football’s new plastic fans

0
While football fans across Europe scrambled to justify which Bundesliga team they had in fact always supported, and fans across the UK forced themselves to watch German football without chanting for the destruction of “10 German bombers in the air”, it seems that the restart of the South Korean K-League has caught us all off guard.    Similarly to games in the [...]

Column: The Corona Coup

0
The coronavirus pandemic is redefining the relationship between ordinary people and the state in a way unprecedented in recent times. In some countries the law is changing drastically without so much as a vote.   In the UK, the government passed a far-reaching emergency powers bill that has practically suspended liberty. One ‘libertarian’ MP was close to tears as he spoke on [...]

The Prisoner of Downing Street

0
You could have been forgiven for failing to believe your eyes when the BBC News update popped up on mobile phone screens around the world ‘PM Boris Johnson tests positive for coronavirus and is self-isolating in Downing Street’.   Surely if it really is as simple as washing your hands for at least twenty seconds and not touching your face, then it [...]

About

onthefence is an independent satirical news platform for the 21st century. Through satire and critical articles, we give a commentary that is both left and right. Right where necessary, left where necessary – depending on what side is underrepresented in society and politics. We will never adapt our commentary to become a solely left or right wing outlet. Hence our motto; “satirical news not for the meek, from the fence we speak”. We welcome comments on all of our articles, however outrageous they may be. Where possible we will engage in debate with those who think differently. If you want to write for us, please contact: contributions@onthefence.news and join us onthefence.
