It's obvious why our Assembly is doomed to fail

THE main political parties in Northern Ireland cannot find agreement on a whole range of issues.

We are led to believe that the whole system of government in Northern Ireland may collapse because of this.

The question which should be asked, however, is: Why is there any surprise at this?

The prime objective of one of the main parties in the Assembly is to bring about a united Ireland.

Indeed, they feel so strongly about this whole issue that they will not even utter the words 'Northern Ireland'.

Why should they do anything positive to sustain, or improve, a country they actually want to do away with? You should not have people at the heart of government whose sole intention is to destroy the actual country itself.

That anyone in their right mind should think that such a system was ever going to be workable beggars belief.
