Make Your Toilet Great Again

Amid the escalating trade war between the US and China, Donald Trump toilet brushes have exploded in popularity. Where else but in China! 

Chinese citizens are understood to be rushing to snap up the 20-yuan (£2) loo scrubbers as a way of showing their support for Beijing. They are popular on Taobao, the Chinese equivalent to eBay. 

One seller on Taobao is even chucking in a free roll of toilet paper with Trump's face on for those who buy the 'Trump' loo brushes. LOL!

Malaysian squash queen Nicol David got off to a good start at the 2019 British Open Tournament (May 20-26) in Hull, UK on Monday when the five-time British Open champion beat HK’s Ho Tze-Lok, 11-7, 11-5 and 13-11 in 32 minutes. 

The following day, world number three, Nour El Tayeb had the upper hand in the second round when she bested David 11-4, 11-7, 11-13 and 11-5 in 41 minutes. 

The 35-year-old showed glimpses of her brilliance and fighting spirit but it wasn’t enough. The British Open is her final outing. 

Likewise, in the first round, former world number five Low Wee Wern did well to dispose Fiona Moverley of England, 11-6, 11-3 and 11-6 – but in the second round, NZ’s Joelle King was simply too good, beating Low 11-6, 11-4 and 11-9. 

Never mind, what’s important is the never-say-die attitude. And both gals have loads of it.

Still, for David (left), her competitive squash-playing days may be over – but for Low (far left), there’s another day and another tournament to look forward to. 

Keep up the good fight!
