Super councils destined to fail

I wish to condemn the handling of the proposed 'super councils'. The imminent collapse of this scheme is, in my view, the outcome of DUP/Sinn Fein incompetence and has resulted in a scandalous waste of public money.

This is yet another sign that the Stormont Executive cannot govern effectively. As if the academic selection debacle wasn't enough evidence of the dysfunctionality of our Executive, the people of Northern Ireland now have to watch the collapse of this much-hyped scheme.
