Stop all salaries and funding for NI MLA's if Devolution isn't reinstated.

The people of Northern Ireland are still without a Devolved Assembly in operation. 

The parties involved; The DUP, Sinn Fein, UUP, Alliance Party, SDLP and others are currently involved in talks to reinstate the Assembly. 

The two main players are Sinn Sein and DUP and it is in the gift of these two parties to have government in place working for the people of Northern Ireland and it is these who must set aside their differences and get the Assembly back to work.

if full Devolution is not restored on, then all MLA salaries must be stopped from this date.  Additionally all funding for the Assembly including the salaries of all those who work for for MLA's must be stopped immediately.  Any and all funding that parties receive for constituency offices and workers be stopped immediately. 

It was the people of Northern Ireland who voted to have Devolution in the Good Friday Agreement and subsequent agreements and it is the people of Northern Ireland who are being failed by their elected representatives. 

This is the second time the NI Assembly has been in this situation and it must be the last time it is allowed to happen.  The MLA's must make the Assembly work, they must return to the Assembly and they must get back to work for the benefit of everyone in Northern Ireland. 

Failing this; if the DUP and SF cannot or will not reinstate Devolution then in addition to withdrawing all finances and funding to the Assembly in totality and scrapping Devolution in Northern Ireland and returning to Direct Rule from the UK Government. 

The majority of Northern Ireland people do not want a return to Direct Rule but we cannot go on perpetually funding the Assembly when it is failing to deliver for the people of Northern Ireland. 

The UK Parliament must act on this and if Devolution is not reinstated then Prime Minister Theresa May must act and dissolve the NI Assembly, withdraw all funding and reinstate Direct Rule on Northern Ireland by the Uk Parliament.
