    Default Martin Mc Guinness Resigns Seat.

    Just spotted this breaking news.

    He says it is because of the Party's commitment to root out 'double jobbing'. One wonders about the pension issues and whether or not it will up the ante in Ireland where a culture of multiple pensions still reigns supreme.

    Wonder if he is a Baron as well.

    Strange. The SF'rs always loved double jobbing.

    Sure it was considered disloyal if you weren't a politician and a "soldier" at the same time.

    Thought you were better than that, bren...was I wrong?
    Anyway, the OP is way behind the curve on this "story". I think they've selected Francie Molloy to fight the by-election, and I don't think they'll be delaying it for eighteen months, unlike the democrats this side of the border.

    It's not as if he actually took it is it? Cameron is introducing legislation to prevent anyone elected from being paid if they do not take the oath anyway.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    I would be more impressed to see Gilmore, Rabbitte, Reilly, or Kenny resign.

    Dublin is taking over SF a la the WP took over Labour.

    Expect a partition of SF within the next decade...
