I’d say Robin Newton may find himself on the scrap heap alongside Jonathan Bell.

He is already on the scrapheap & has been, for some time. He promised to go, after the Dee Stitt affair & today would have been the first chance for him to formally stand down. He will have to hang on , therefore, until they get a new Speaker in place (with cross community support, of course).

I wasn’t aware of that. He was standing firm today from his mates in the DUP anyway.

The Speaker is supposed to be completely impartial. He takes his cue from the officers of the Assembly, who were sitting on both sides of him, to keep him straight.  He wasn't even allowed to sign the motion to recall the Assembly.

Taken from this week's Popbitch newsletter...

Stalling tactics

There's been a lot of focus on the Tories, Labour and Lib Dems' relative popularity in the early days of this election – but what about the smaller parties? How are the DUP faring with the voter on the street at the moment?

Arlene Foster and Nigel Dodds went out for a late lunch at a fancy restaurant-bar in East Belfast the other week, bringing a sizable entourage of heavies with them. The guards quickly commandeered the restaurant's toilets, telling any diners who approached to either hold it in or use the toilets in the venue's bar instead.

That was until one brave diner squared up to them, insisting to be let past and threatening to soil themselves if they wouldn't move – getting someone to hover about with their camera phone primed.

Funnily enough, Foster and Dodds didn't hang around much longer after that. They left their desserts behind and were treated to a long slow-clap out of the venue.

I used to think they were just taking the piss out of people with this kind of stuff but I do sometimes wonder do they just completely lack any form of self awareness. They haven’t really proved themselves to be very competent recently.

They also said if Boris builds a bridge to Scotland  they’d maybe trust him again ;D

They are fucked.  Not that the Tories really give a f**k but at least in Dodds, they had someone who, as a barrister, has to give convincing speeches for a living. Now they are left with chip-shop Sammy to convince parliament not to vote the Boris deal through with Eastwood and Hanna telling it like it really is. Brilliant!! ;D

You had Sylvia Hermon telling it like it really is last year, won't matter a fiddlers f**k in the grand scheme of things in westminster. Tories can and will do as they please.

Exactly right.
It doesn't matter how many from any party here are in Westminster. It's a token gesture and they have no power. SF, in my opinion, with their abstention policy are drawing attention to this. The previous parliament with DUP propping up the Tories was an exception, and even in doing it, they didn't make any real impact on policy.
The only good thing to come out of SDLP and Alliance getting a voice over there now, is that the DUP can't claim to represent NI without it being challenged. Perhaps the media will pick up on that.
