Ladies On Top

Politics has long been seen as a boy's only club but something has changed recently and women are hoovering up the top seats at political tables all over.
Britain is set to get its second woman prime minister, while the SNP leader and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Arlene Foster is the First Minister in Northern Ireland, Wales Plaid Cymru's Leanne Wood and Green Party leader Natalie Bennett are all calling the shots with their parties.
On the global stage, America could be about to get its first female president, in Hillary Clinton, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel continues to dominate European politics and
The opposition Labour Party have now joined in the fun and could have their first female leader for the first time in its history, if Angela Eagle replaces Jeremy Corbyn.
UKIP are rudderless and Diane James or Suzanne Evans are being considered to replace Nigel Farage so finally it has been decided that the men have made a hash of things and it is the turn of the ladies to sort out the mess the men have got us into, but then, what's new about that?
