Sir Reg Empey, that most urbane of Ulster Unionists, has said something sensible! Yes - this is the big story of the day folks.

"With the people facing a tidal wave of increased charges for rates and water, and with very little improvement in hospital waiting lists, I do not see how the democratic and financial costs of Stormont can continue to be borne much longer.I want Stormont to work, but equally, if the opportunity is not going to be seized now and acts of completion delivered, then it might be in all our interests to wind things up now before more damage is done. At least that way we might have a chance of a restoration in the future."

Good idea. Let's also dismiss the MLA's and save a fortune. Taxcuts all round.
