Respectfully... It doesn't matter what UUP did 5 years ago. It doesn't matter what Sinn Fein did 10 years ago. It doesn't matter what the DUP did 20 years ago. What matters is now. Patients are waiting. Children are hungry. The elderly are cold. Now. #NorthernIreland #AE22 #Now

If the DUP don't want to do the job, they could not sign in and forfeit their salaries. But they won't, of course. They'll just stop every other MLA from doing all of the job they were elected to do. I told the SOS, anyone blocking election of Speaker should lose their salary.
I can鈥檛 find the tweet asking me this but the answer is yes. If the newly elected MLAs sign the roll but don鈥檛 elect the Speaker they will still get their wages. #stormont #onthehill

Just watch today as the DUP MLA鈥檚 all sign in to make sure they get paid. Once they鈥檙e secure, watch what they think of all of you,me & everyone else who wants delivery on our health service, cost of living, education, jobs. #noshame #embarrassing
BREAKING: Sir Jeffrey Donaldson says his party won't nominate an Assembly speaker today as newly elected MLAs gather at Stormont. He tells the Newsletter that the Irish Sea border must go. The DUP's move means the Assembly now won't be able to function.

The cheek of putting up 鈥榝ix the health service鈥 30 hour childcare鈥 posters during the election. Disingenuous. Duplicitous. Discussions on protocol which is not devolved can happen in parallel get back to work!

6 years ago, the DUP backed the wrong horse. They gambled on a monumentally significant referendum that gave us brexit. NI voted to remain, but now, 6 yrs later, they are punishing us all because they have buyer's remorse. Shameful. DUP care not one jot about NI or its people

People are dying waiting for ambulances and the DUP鈥檚 top priority is doubling down on the political crisis they created. It鈥檚 honestly shameful and shameless.

DUP leader will 鈥榳ait and see鈥 while receiving his 拢84,144 MP salary, after putting two fingers up to the people of Lagan Valley by putting a temp into his MLA role. Why did they run for election if they have no intention of doing the job?
DUP will 'wait and see' before deciding on whether to back election of Northern Ireland Assembly speaker: bbc.in/3kXV7az

This is why we press the issue of reform to both UK & Irish gov's this week. And we will continue to do so, even if an Executive is established we must ensure the ability to hold it to ransom by one party is removed.
Replying to @RBlackPA
Alliance deputy leader Stephen Farry said not to nominate a new Stormont speaker would be 鈥渆xtremely irresponsible鈥.
