The leaders of France and the United Kingdom are having very different weeks. Theresa May's occupancy of Number 10 is perhaps fatally threatened after she failed to secure the overall majority and must now rely on the DUP for support. In light of Brexit, the result has huge implications for Ireland and Europe as well as the United Kingdom. Meanwhile in Paris, Emmanuel Macron is basking in an overwhelming victory for his party in the first round of French parliamentary elections, aided by a sense among voters that France's pride is being restored under his leadership. Guests: Gerry Moriarty in Belfast, Denis Staunton in London and Lara Marlowe in Paris.
