SF need to stand up to Foster and let Stormont go, Tories will trump them in Westminster for now. DUP will lose out in the end.

Your SF leader has stated that Stormont is key to the strategy for achieving a UI.

In my opinion, which is not one valued by Gerry Adams, SF should resume in Stormont. However, they should state that if Brexit results in the imposition without consultation of any measures which make more difficult the conduct of trade or the passage of goods people or vehicles on the island of Ireland, then the British will have reneged on the GFA and that involvement will end.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Here comes Arlene with the one billion wiping SF's face. No need for a Northern bank job.
Warning. Don't try this at home unless in the company of a responsible adult

If? it may not restrict travel for citizens of either jurisdiction. It will restrict the movement of other EU citizens. It will pose significant difficulties for farmers, transport companies and industry. Unionists keep talking about the 70% trade wit the UK, which is not in jeopardy. However what is in jeopardy is 30% of our exports which go to the EU, thats a large chunk in any mans money.

Would the Irish language act be enough for Sinn Féin to hold their noses with Arlene remaining as first minister even after the RHI debacle?

Only if she issues an apology in Irish.

As some said, while the  assembly doesn't sit, the MLAs are still being paid.  The money the DUP are getting from the conservatives may disappear into sone's back pocket while there are no ministries to allocate it.

How can SF and the SDLP sit with the DUP in stormount while the DUP have the Tories by the ball sack. Its just not workable and as said before they both should walk away.

Wrong. DUP have agreed it will still be used by civil service to carry on with projects decided by an overseeing committee of MPs with DUP input.

Not just elected MPs being paid but those who lost their seats remain on and paid until replaced by assembly being formally instituted.
