Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
 A Chara - UK opposition MPs are threatening to continue to meet in informal session when the House of Commons is prorogued. Given that attendance at such sessions would not require an oath of allegiance to the Queen, will Sinn Fein be attending those sessions to ensure that the DUP are not the only party representing Northern Ireland?

And while they are at it, shouldn't Sinn Fein be challenging the oath of allegiance in the courts? After all, the Good Friday Agreement guarantees "equality of esteem"  to both Nationalist and Unionist traditions, and yet Nationalists are denied representation in Parliament through an oath which is inimical to their beliefs and identity.

Northern Ireland needs them to do their job at this critical time in our history. Varadker and Coveney can't be expected to do all the heavy lifting while critical decisions effecting Ireland's future are being made in Westminster.
