Any move towards direct rule unacceptable - McCallion
Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has said any moves towards direct rule by the British government are unacceptable.
The Foyle MP said:
"Any moves by the British government to impose direct rule on the north - in any guise - is unacceptable.
"The ongoing events in Westminster have shown that the interests of the people of Ireland will never be served by the British government or British parliament.
"The fact this action is being considered by Julian Smith is in contravention of the St Andrew's Agreement and underscores once again that the dysfunctional Tory government is in complete hock to its toxic pact with the DUP."
