If Sinn Fein doesn't want to be in the British Parliament, they should resign their seats
This anomaly should be resolved straight away. If you are elected to serve as Member of Parliament and you never join the British Parliament then your seat should be declared vacant and by-election should take place.
If a political party stands in a General Election and when having Members of Parliament chooses not to enter the House of Commons, then the said party should not be allowed to take party in General Elections.
Britain has put up for too long with the sillines of Sinn Fein and the time is long overdue for Parliament to exercise its powers to ensure that those elected as Members of Parliament actually work as Members of Parliament and do attend sessions of the House of Commons.
In the Good Friday Agreement, Sinn Fein representatives should have been told that unless they agreed to take part in politics representing their electorate in the House of Commons they would not be allowed to stand in British Politics.
