Both SFIRA and the DUP attempts to keep the public in the dark by not having minutes of meetings taken shows again that neither are suitable for government.
David Sterling, head of NICS, said the two parties were "sensitive to criticism" and that the lack of minutes of meetings helped to thwart Freedom of Information (FoI) requests.

To many Ulster folk are savages and hysterical ones at that, the more they are kept out of politics the better.

David Sterling said that there was a desire by the DUP and Sinn Fein for many meetings not to be minuted or otherwise recorded, in an attempt to thwart Freedom of Information (FoI) requests.

Mr Sterling, who is now running Northern Ireland without any ministerial oversight in the absence of either devolution or direct rule, told the inquiry that the two parties were “sensitive to criticism” and that officials – despite civil service advice being to the contrary – had “got into the habit of not recording all meetings”.

DUP Fein treats people like mushrooms.

Keep them in the dark and fed them sh1t.

To be fair it works.

Last Westminster elections both parties hit record highs in terms of votes and seats.

So much for transparent government that SFIRA talk so much about.
It can be seen that they do not mean it by the way they ignored the subject of the OP on this and every other thread.

If you’d botherd to investigate a wee bit instead of stupidly jumping in head first because of your blind hate, you would have found out that the amount she was shown to have paid back to the party (*£3-4K)was for the last 6 month period ... the previous 6 months weren’t made available ,,,, as it happens many Shinners had made their main payments then .... but you didn’t take the time to find that out did you ole son ....

And anyway, wtf is it to you how much of their own wage the shinners take home ? ...surely the fact that they give “anything” back to the party proves that they aren’t a bunch of greedy pr1cks like the unionist politicians.... how much do they donate back Doggy ? .....I’ll answer that for you shall I ? ....feck all, that’s how much .... loyal to the half crown :lol:

Btw, thought you had me on ignore .. ah, you’re the same as baby Craig.. you just can’t keep away :lol:

A Sinn Fein minister asked civil servants not to attend a key meeting after which policy was controversially changed, meaning that no minutes of what was discussed can now be made public, the News Letter can reveal.

Ten days ago Sinn Fein furiously denied the claim by David Sterling, the head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service, that officials had deliberately not kept records of many meetings involving DUP and Sinn Fein ministers in a bid to thwart potential Freedom of Information requests due to the fact that the two parties were “sensitive to criticism”.

However, this newspaper has obtained evidence which shows that just over a year ago the then Sinn Fein infrastructure minister, Chris Hazzard had been due to bring civil servants to a meeting with Sinn Fein MP Paul Maskey and taxi company owners.

However, at the last minute Mr Hazzard told the officials not to attend, meaning that there was no departmental record of what happened.
