Labour loses the Sun, Robinson to stand again

As the Sun backs the Conservatives on the back of Gordon Brown’s speech, Peter Robinson tells UTV he may stand again for Parliament. During the summer he commented:

This is a necessary prelude to the ending of double jobbing. Several months ago I indicated that we would be phasing out dual mandates…….It is simply not possible to sustain and fully perform multiple roles whether they involve other elected positions or indeed interests outside Parliament.

What happened to the three year window?

I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
