    If it was a done deal we'd know by now, surely? I think they are going to do a Queens Speech without the agreement..

    The orange order having their say here . Some of Arlenes MPs are among their membership . Worth noting that the orange order were also instrumental ..alongside the loyalist paramilitaries...in getting the DUPs vote out . They also played a major role in voter registration drives and the like , opening up their halls for registration points . Often with the paramilitaries shooing the prospective voters into them . They expect reciprocation, make no secret of it .

    Arlene herself was down in Portadown kicking it with the bros just a few weeks before the election.

    Thousands gather in Portadown to mark 500th anniversary of Protestant Reformation

    And ..fuck me , even I'm stunned at the stupidity of this . The vagaries of the champions league qualifiers have given us this absolute beaut of a fixture in the middle of all this shit . This is literally throwing petrol on a bonfire . On the 11th of July ...just hours before all those thousands of hate pyres are lit ....Glasgow Celtic will be arriving in Belfast to play Linfield. Pretty much the Glasgow rangers of the 6 counties . Rangers sister team in many respects .

    Celtic v Linfield: Security fears over potential Belfast clash on July 11 - should venue be switched to Glasgow? - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk

    This is insanity in my view . The absolute worst night of the year for this to be going down in Belfast . Sectarian tensions will be hyped up massively . That game should definitely be moved to Glasgow or somewhere . It's crazy . Absolutely the last thing Belfast needs right now . An old firm type derby in a sectarian cesspit right on the eve of the bonfires being lit and the annual hate fest .

    What could go wrong ?

    One small rayof sunshine in this mess is that due to the chronic economic dysfunctionality of the artificial state in occupied Ireland , the place is basically propped up by government grants, public sector employment and a massive reliance on the benefits system . Despite being a far right party the DUP basically don't have any economic ideology . They are heavily populist in their approach to the economic end of things...literally a begging bowl mentality . As you can see from their utterly confused stance as regards Brexit .
    This may well serve to put the brakes on some of the Tories austerity measures and benefits cuts . The DUP daren't go back to their constituents with austerity measures . Although I suspect they'll be quite happy to cut a deal were the North gets insulated from the Tories attacks on the poor . Which would again put their " Britishness " into perspective .

    And a big get-together of singing their traditional and ever-so-folksy-cultural songs. Because they are all so upstanding and good chaps and chappesses, all joyfully up to their knees in Fenian blood. :mad:

    fuck it the uup or whatever they were called were tory lobby fodder and only asked for the occasional change to make a bigoted speech in the house whoeverbody ignored .

    DUP are going to try to use their power and expose themselves as the arseholes they are.
    less brexit
    more Niexit not sure a country can just tell a province to fuck off :hmm:but arlene might just be the woman to achieve it:D

    The DUP have over stretched themselves I reckon . They're swimming with big fucking sharks now and way out of their depth .they were much better off with themselves and their cancerous activities being relatively anonymous, spotlights doing them no favours . corruption is criminality and they're absolutely mired in it . They're wide open and out of their depth meddling in powerful interests power plays . And making their beloved union less than popular among the British public .

    Poi E Pessimism: a valuable protection against quackery.

    I wouldn't credit the Tories with being overly blessed with smarts. Two gambles with their party's future haven't turned out they say they expected, and the puppets of the ruling classes negotiating Brexit are looking like provincial fools when facing their opposite numbers. The DUP will feel right at home with the parochial parade of fools in Westminster.
  26. Teaboy

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    And some. This is all the tories fault of course but it bothers me a lot that these crackpots that are so out of sync with the rest of the UK are having such an influence upon the government.

    In the big boys and girls playground, still clinging to being a big kid in the small playground. Completely out of their League.

    Apparently they have collectively decided not to answer their phones to the Tories for 36 hours - arsey teenager stuff.
    DUP refused to answer Theresa May's calls for 36 hours

    Hell hath no fury like a Tory scorned.

    tbh that's the bit that gives me the most hope. The more influence the DUP are seen to be having, the better. I want rid of these cunts, and sooner rather than later. And marching season is almost upon us... Let them have their moment of influence, and let it bring the whole edifice crashing down.

    By my reading of this, the longer it goes on, the less likely it is that the Tories will feel they can offer anything at all. If they'd struck an agreement last week quickly and quietly, with some guarantee of some aspect of NI funding included, they might have got away with it, but not now, not post-Queen's speech. The tories have already ditched most of the shit the DUP were concerned about. They could, if they'd been smart, have presented this ditching as happening due to a process of consultation and listening that included listening to DUP concerns. Now, they cannot do that.

    I would imagine there will be a great deal more in the british press about the rampant racism and triumphalism of the Marching/bonfire season this year.

    Good. Finally the good people of Britain may see the neanderthal antics of those who wave their flag so enthusiastically. I don't doubt that millions will feel positively queasy about what is about to unfold.

    And that's before the british press start poking about into Red Sky, Nama, RHI (cash for ash) and the Saudi money the DUP laundered to fund their Brexit ads in the british press.
