In my humble opinion all public representatives in the 6 counties (of the north of Ireland) need to resign immediately and thereby force an election, let's have one every 3 months until this impasse is resolved. We could set some criteria for total voter apathy and when any politician's votes reach that level they must retire.
“We were born into an unjust system. We are not prepared to grow old in it.”
and equally pertinent from Alanis Morissette - All I Really Want (is real politik)
"Why are you so petrified of silence?
Here can you handle this?
Did you think about your bills,
you ex, your deadlines
Or when you think you're going to die?
Or did you long for the next distraction?"
