Actually, he hadn't made clear that he was referring to a specific vote in parliament on 11th September 2017.

This vote was enhanced by 7 Labour MPs joining the Tories and a considerable number of them abstaining.

Of course partition has retarded the norths economic growth. A century ago it was a powerhouse, and the wealthiest city on the island, now its embarrassing how far it lags behind Dublin. It being run as a loyalist fiefdom post-partition, with a blind eye turned by London meant they were blowing any chance they had of making it a success, and also encouraging London to ignore it, a policy which will never be reversed now.

Open up a few more call centres in Belfast & even the Chinese government will start getting worried.

Which is why the argument that SF going to Westminster will make a blind bit of difference to Brexit, or anything else important is complete nonsense.

Correct.  That was my point in giving the actual numbers for each party which show that the Tories plus DUP cannot be beaten with or without the DUP.
