Video: TUV's Jim Allister believes 'accountable' direct rule may be only way forward


TUV Leader Jim Allister believes the only way forward from the political stalemate may be for British ministers to take over the responsibility of Executive ministers.

"If politicians in Northern Ireland aren't yet mature enough to have a voluntary coalition, then the alternative is for British ministers to step in as the Executive Ministers, but retain the Assembly as the law-making body and scrutiny body - and thereby, unlike the last time, make direct rule accountable," he said.
