    Looks like May will survive because of the [This comment/section has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions] in the DUP. No decent person in this country should ever will forgive them did propping up a government that is to the Right of Thatcher. They disgust me.

    They shut down Stormont. Westminster is paralysed since May had to bring them on board.
    They are a jinx.

    [This comment/section has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions] They are on a par with the vile regime in Saudi. Sadly Protestants in the 6 counties have little choice as Labour doesn’t organise there. The whole Good Friday is in jeopardy in my view if we get a No deal. They are complicit. They are lower than a snakes belly. They make me physically sick.

    I am aware that there are many ways of looking at the NI conflict, however he maybe needs to remember that being deeply involved in the causes of and prolongation of the "campaign" is not seen positively by the rest of the UK.

    Had they switched sides, she'd have lost by one.
    They were indeed the difference.

    Yes and a general election would have happened. Theyve already sabotaged Stormont. They are wreckers.

    She won by 19, SF didn't vote and hold 7 seats, DUP have 10. Besides Lady Hermon, who else supported the government? Why should the DUP vote for Jeremy Corbyn?

    What about SF in Stormont? SF withdrew and caused the close down and they didn't do it out of love for the people. The DUP are indeed beyond the pale but a national and socialist party pledged to continue the union might have supplanted them. Don't complain now that Tony's machinations which supported SF and the DUP over SDLP and the UUP have come back to bite you on the bum.

    John Woodcock supported Theresa May. Loathsome individual. He should resign and allow his constituents to decide whether they want him to continue to represent them when he spits in their eye every day.

    Sorry; I forgot. There is the political entity called GB to which wonderful people and even gods lucky enough to be born English belong. The citizens are honest, care for those less fortunate wherever they live. Northern Irish Unionism: Caliban to GB's Miranda. Doesn't Scotland have tax-raising powers other devolved parliaments don't have? Wasn't that part of the price paid to keep them in the union? NI was told that reducing their business rate would mean less money for other things so we had to compete with the lower rate in the RoI. I believe that Wales voted for the UK to leave, NI didn't.
    Poor Caliban; condemned because the great and good didn't school him enough.

    Abhorred slave,
    Which any print of goodness wilt not take,
    Being capable of all ill! I pitied thee,
    Took pains to make thee speak, taught thee each hour
    One thing or other: when thou didst not, savage,
    Know thine own meaning, but wouldst gabble like
    A thing most brutish, I endow'd thy purposes
    With words that made them known. But thy vile race,
    Though thou didst learn, had that in't which
    good natures
    Could not abide to be with; therefore wast thou
    Deservedly confined into this rock,

    Who hadst deserved more than a prison.[3]

    The DUP should vote for the national interest. They keep banging on about it but they don’t mean it. I wonder how much more money has been shuffled off to NI at the expense of Wales, Scotland and the regions of Britain.

    It’s not about me. It’s about Britain which the DUP claim they want to be part of. They’ve alienated a lot of it tonight.

    They got less than the deal. That deal which also guaranteed the triple lock on old-age pensions across the UK. As usual it's about a particular moment in time. What about Welsh mines and Scottish ship-building? When the IRA restarted its armed campaign the folks (I know you wouldn't see the word good associated with the folks of NI) had to see reductions in money for NHS, education, infra-structure and so on to pay for the increased security. We were only a special case because of the lower levels of support we received. But hey; we should go to the RoI where any voicing of contrary opinions would be met with 'get out' because there won't much parity of esteem according to Gerry Adams.

    Would that be the one where Corbyn is PM?

    They want to remain in the UK. The backstop that they voted against was voted against by many others, they voted against advantages to do that. Why should they vote for a GE to give Corbyn a chance? He wants us out. People didn't prefer Corbyn at the last GE, he couldn't get a majority with Lib Dems and SNP on board. Remember, JC lost the last election, not enough people voted for Labour candidates. Don't blame the DUP for English, Welsh and Scottish failures; they could have voted him in.

    Many Mps are a disgrace in reality - given their subversion of democracy . May the Titan is stronger than people think :)

    It's just your opinion, you can't be bothered to vote for any party. Did you vote in the referendum?
