She is also to step down as MLA and MP… There is still the unanswered question as to what is to happen at Castlereagh Borough Council… He cross party colleagues have initiated an inquiry to the whole affair… Interesting to note that Mrs Robinson’s ill judged business dealings appear to date from after Peter Robinson resigned his council seat to take on Ministerial duties…
