Arlene Foster and Michelle O'Neill

Arlene Foster and Michelle O'Neill need to take a Thelma and Louise type trip to New Zealand in 2021. Not for a bonding break, but to see first-hand what effective female leadership looks like in a pandemic.

Jacinda Ardern puts our first and deputy first ministers - and almost every male politician around the globe - to shame. She has saved lives and her country's economy.

Just 25 people have died of Covid in New Zealand where life has almost returned to normal. Meanwhile, we drift from lockdown to lockdown, with a disgraceful death toll.
