Lock MLAs in room until they strike deal

Can I make a suggestion to Mr Brokenshire, (the Secretary of State)?

Put all the negotiators into a locked room, send food in occasionally, but not too often (hunger concentrates the mind wonderfully) through a dumb waiter, don't let them out (or speak to the media) until they come to an agreement and stream the whole thing live so we - their wage payers - can see exactly for ourselves where the log-jams are and who is causing them.

Maybe I'm only serious about the speaking to the media and the last bit about streaming.
