The failure to agree a new Executive has been described as ‘disgraceful and unacceptable’ by the Workers Party.
‘It is now blatantly obvious that neither the DUP or Sinn Fein are capable of restoring a devolved government’.
For more than a year they have choreographed a sham fight over vanity projects and red lines in a total and contemptuous disregard for the health, well being, education and quality of life of ordinary working people and for the economy of Northern Ireland.
Our public services are being run down, teachers, health care staff and employees in both the public and private sectors have borne the burden of wage freezes and austerity measures.
The health service is in crisis, schools have no budgets, the economy is at a standstill, jobs are being lost and all while these two parties deliver excuses but no solutions.
Having shown that they are incapable or unwilling to form a new administration that option should now be withdrawn from the DUP and Sinn Fein. A system of majority rule by a party or parties willing to restart the Assembly should now be enacted.
