#16 – Northern Ireland Act

Friday 19th May 2017

“There is a threat posed from the political elephant in the room, or rather, the elephant on the Hill at Stormont. You don’t need to tell me what is and what’s not happening at Stormont. We see Sinn Fein as one party having the power to bring those institutions to its knees; that’s not democratic.

Sinn Fein got that power out of the amendments made to the Northern Ireland Act 1998 at St Andrews in 2006. For the sake of true democracy, we need to see some amendments to that Act again which will remove that power from any one party to bring the institutions to their knees. I’m asking for your support on 8th June by voting Robbie Butler X so that I can be that strong voice at Westminster and seek these much-needed changes.”
