Cut MLAs to save money right now

Hooray for our politicians! Once more they've saddled the population with a huge debt, but it will be okay - we will sell off our water and transport and the Belfast Harbour (News, Jan 2) to pay for it. Short-term gain for very long-term pain. And we have to wait until 2021 for our Assembly to be reduced from 108 Members to 90!

What is the Government thinking about? We need the Assembly numbers reduced by half now and a large reduction in expenses. Perhaps, then, we wouldn't need such a bailout.

The cuts should start at the top before any public services are reduced.
