I have been thinking about this problem for some time, after careful consideration I believe this to be the best course of action. For too long have these elected officials dined on the taxpayers pocket without showing any real justification or evidence that they have earned their wage.

They spend more time bickering between themselves than getting any real work done. We have suffered in recent years from having no functioning Government, with the civil service behind the wheel keeping the country going and Westminster having more of a say in our part of the world than is ideal.

They make a mockery of democracy. Sinn Fein and the DUP. One always out to get the other while the public suffers in the aftermath. If we could get religion away from politics that would increase the chances of real change being implemented. It is easier said than done though so the more realistic ambition is to limit how often these MLA's can be elected into the role. 

No more MLA's clocking up decades of hate fuelled public service. No more MLA's suspected of lining their pockets with fraudelent money from failed schemes and initiatives. No more undeserved pay rises and undeclared taxes & expenses. Let's say no more! Let's restrict these politicians to serving only two terms! Let's see younger generations get involved in politics, give other people a voice, with different solutions being found. 

The time has come for change. If by a miracle this gets debated, or even better put into law someday, I must stress there is no guarantee it'll stop the politics of division. It is damage limitation and a line of defence against those who abuse their position of power.
