Responding to the DUPâ€™s announcement that some double jobbing DUP MPs will not stand for re-election to the Assembly Jim Allister said:
â€œIt is not often that the EU Parliament gets things right but they were certainly correct when they decided that MEPs could not be members of their national parliaments. The ending of duel mandates is something which I have long called for.
â€œIt is clear to me that the voters are tired of the double and triple jobbing politicians which are so common in Northern Ireland politics. Nor, might I add, have they much time for family dynasty building.â€
