Dup: why don't they turn completely now and support remain 08:16 - Oct 18 with 1098 viewsgiant_ullaa

... As a way of avoiding an Irish sea border? And also as revenge for being screwed over? I realise I must be talking nonsense, but...

Has anyone ever looked at their own postings for last day or so? Oh my... so sorry.

Cos Sinn Fein welcomed the deal (as the least worst option I think was their phrase) so it aint going to happen.

Fair enough - knew there must be a reason but didn't have a clue on why.

I'm sure they'll come round. Nothing a few cheques at the border can't solve innit.

I'd also point out they are quite adept at demanding and getting maximum leverage from their votes. Their statement said something like fhey are against the deal "at this time" which is code for we are still open to discussions/cheques*

Supporting Remain would involve voting for something which keeps NI closely linked to the Republic (as an EU member state). Thus the DUP are not in favour.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

Fair enough but that was what started the bother in Stormont in the first place. Is there any evidence that the money that has been received lately has been used in a dodgy way?

To be fair I do not know, it is not something I have been following at all. The funds may not even be in place yet. My very limited experience of dealing with public administration in Northern Ireland is that it can be opaque in the extreme.

That's the thing with zealots, logic and rationality aren't part of their decision making.

There's a book out soon on the farcical implementation of the renewable heating scheme in NI that the DUP are deeply implicated in. Should be an interesting read.
