Sorry, read it on The Sun, no link.But is it true?

Not according to the Grauniad:

It doesn't seem likely that they'd violate such a long held and fundamental principle.

I wouldn't have thought so. They may well be seen in Westminster as I believe they take up their offices, staff allowances etc, but I can't see them taking the oath.

But with how changeable politics has been in recent years, who knows?

No.

Nothing official from Michelle O'Neill, but this rt by Gerry Adams would indicate that they're rocking up to point out that a deal with the DUP is the worst idea since mint flavoured milk, but not to take their seats
