In America Donald Trump is doing rather well in his quest for the Republican nomination for the 2016 election - if successful he would become what commentator Jon Stewart has correctly called "the first openly asshole President".

In Britain, the Labour Party is getting excited about Jeremy Corbyn as the possible solution to its own leadership problem, allowing them to dream for a while of a Labour Party with an actual left-wing person in charge - it's so crazy it just might work.

In Ireland things are a little clearer, after the announcement last week by the Government chief whip Paul Kehoe that ideally Enda Kenny will continue as Taoiseach until 2020 and beyond.
