This week on The Floating Voter, Kevin Doyle is joined by Philip Ryan and Shona Murray.

In this week's very entertaining episode the panel discuss the latest on the Brexit border issue and how well Leo is doing in the poles. Is he taking the credit for Enda Kenny's ground work (or Enda Kelly as UK MP Bernard Jenkin put it) and is Bertie Ahearn the "Grand Wizard of Irish politics"?

With the compulsory retirement age moved up from 65 to 70 they look at the prospect of working until 70.

And Shona helps us understand what Donald Trump announcing that the United States recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will mean for peace in the Middle East.
