Let’s just look at who controls Welfare, on the 18th of November 2015 Sinn Fein voted to allow all this to happen, they received criticism for handing Welfare powers to Westminster and they responded by saying this was temporary, on paper that was true.
The sunset clause was written within the Fresh Start Agreement it stated that Welfare powers where to be handed back by December 2016.
So now we should have questions arise as this would put Sinn Fein and the DUP in charge of welfare. Does this give them power to fix the very things that Sinn Fein have been claiming to oppose, if the answer to that is anything other than yes then that means Stormont has no power, our welfare is still being controlled by Westminster and the DUP with their buddies Sinn Fein are actively covering this up with a walk out over two issues they will never agree on.
Keep this in mind, they point the finger at Westminster even though they voted to allow this to happen.
They slam Austerity even though they are suppose to have the power over the very thing causing it.
If any member of Sinn Fein wish to challange me on this please feel, I’m sure the whole of the North will be interested to hear what you have to say.
