Direct rule required, not wining and dining

When will the penny drop before Secretary of State James Brokenshire realises that he is flogging a dead horse by trying to get the elected parties to take up the positions they were elected to?

Now he is trying to butter them up by wining and dining them in luxurious hotels at the taxpayer's expense.

Get a grip and get direct rule in place immediately, stop their salaries and tax-free allowances (which never should have been paid in the first place).

You are not capable of making decisions, be they important, or otherwise. We need someone like Edward Heath, who, with one stroke of the pen, prorogued Stormont. He was, unlike you, a leader.
