The Covid-19 pandemic has influenced politics around the world. Some political reputations have been enhanced because of a perceived competence in dealing with the pandemic, while other reputations, such as that of Emmanuel Macron, have been damaged.

Some other politicians have been in trouble for breaching Covid regulations and the SNP's Margaret Ferrier, who lost her party whip, has been charged with culpable and reckless conduct.

Meanwhile, in Northern Ireland, the biggest political impact has been around the funeral of former IRA leader Bobby Storey, with ranks of men marching behind the Sinn Fein leadership.
