The government finds billions from the magic money tree to buy the confidence and supply of the DUP. Now, they are looking to divorce the EU for $44bn, have NI operate as an EU-remainin’ entity and have the UK otherwise operate outside the EU apart from NI. It solves the problem of the Irish border in the island of Ireland.
But! They wont be able do this without the support of the DUP. And they are saying Hell No! So much for confidence and supply then. More tremendous negotiating there.
It’s unfolding like…like….what? There must be something in the Bible (perhaps near the back) or in Greek mythology that outlines what happens when shoddy, murky deals of convenience are done – only to find that the very people who benefited from the deal are prepared to scupper the whole thing moments later. There are some educated people on here, so I’m hoping there’s someone in the Massive that can help me keep afloat at forthcoming Christmas gatherings with academics, teenagers and the like.
