Direct rule can't be any worse

The latest news that school funding is to be substantially cut merely strengthens my call for the removal of this ludricrously expensive, incompetent administration at Stormont.

Tens of millions of pounds wasted on travel, rental of premises and staff employment on a crowd of ,by and large, incompetents.

Direct rule with the Northern Ireland MPs/members of the House of Lords being ministers, or if they are incompetent GB MPs, couldn't be any worse and would save tens of millions.
