yes, as an American ignoramous. i have noted via YT docs that your NI parlement has not conveined in like - how many years now?
why not? i do not understand.
NI parlement building is pretty! does it just stand there empty for the last decade? (i assume there are janitors to keep the building clean at least)
please school me as an ignorant American, what the fuck is the deal with NI parlement not conveining/pretty buidling being empty - for what? 10-15 yrs now?
please, no really school me!!!! i value learning!
Hi gaffo. The NI Assembly was suspended from Jan 2017 to Jan 2020, due to a disagreement between the two largest parties (the DUP and Sinn Fein) that prevented them from cooperating as they had ben doing previously. However, it has been up and running again for the last six months.
Thanks for schooling me Rick!
DUP - Ulsters, and Sinn Fein Irishish independantants.
I know of them - thanks for the reference to them and why the deadlock. (I'm not Irish nor a Brit/UK lander - just an American Joe - but would like to know more about the deadlock - what and why - over what issue?
and if you know, how a deadlock between 2 parties (I assume there are 2-5 others parties in the NI lands - though much smaller, how can the 2 big shut down a parlement where there are more parties representing "the people" of Northern Ireland (yes my question is a legal one - as an ignorant American, loving schooling on non american legalisms).
------and YA!!!!!!!!!! for the NI Parlement being reopened!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I did not know this! -thanls for the headup on it reopening.
Gov in the ideal is intended to represent her People, and an empty PArlement is not serve The People.
happly she is re-opened, and so in the ideal able to now function as a rep ot the People.
ya, i'm an idealist, and know our many gov's (pick your nation) does not represent nor champion the people (but of course should!) (just that a closed building is so much sadder).
thanks for the reply and education and happy NI parlement building is now open for service - now if it will now serve her people is another manter.
