You'd like to think Nelson McCausland is happy enough. Sure NI is out of E.U. and that's all he cares about.  ;D

I still cannot get over those words.

You think that's bad? At least Nelson has since lost his seat. Jeffrey Donaldson, the current First Minister (and the man portrayed as the moderate option during the DUP's leadership contest), was asked in 2019 if he could live with the predicted 40,000 job loses in the event of his party forcing a no-deal Brexit. His reply: "Of course I could live with it. I lived through the troubles and we lost tend of thousands of jobs during that period".

He's not First minister but the rest of your post is spot on. Shocking really. Everything comes back to "SFIRA"  for them

Of course, apologies, Givan is a bit of a non-entity of a First Minister.

Not to mention Sammy Wilson's 'go to the chippy' heckle in Westminster together with a multitude of other Sammy quotes since Brexit. Or Ian Paisley jnr reckoning that the UK would thrive post Brexit and that other EU member states would be so jealous that they would be looking out as well. History will not be kind to them.

Although they will never admit it as it would be political suicide, they must have huge regrets about getting behind the Brexit project with not a second thought.

The end of the NI Protocol which they're ultimately pushing for will be economic suicide for this place as we'd be in with the hard brexit that GB has got.

They really don't give a f**k for the wellbeing of this place at all.

What's the reality here... is it likely it's going to go? I never used to think so but am getting a bit worried that the DUP's wishes are coming and purely because Boris just wants to stick it up to the EU.

Jim Allister said only last week that 'the business community has a lot to answer for' in their support of the protocol. For simply looking after their own interests and doing what they are supposed to do and protect business, the economy and jobs.

I would imagine Trade barriers btw GB  & NI will be relaxed and GB companies trading to Europe via shadowy companies set up in NI.

If you ever saw the video of some "research" group at the Tory party conference discussing the "incentives" businesses in NI had to redirect their supply chains to the IRL/EU rather than GB and that includes that dangerous hoor Frost, you'd be worried that they don't want NI to be an economic success as that looks bad to the rest of GB..

Because the Alex Easton left the DUP and they now have the same number of MLAs as SF, which complicates the election of a new FM.

This made me laugh

Donaldson swats that aside, preferring, with the fluency that won him prizes as a schoolboy debater, to focus on the need to get “solutions to the problems that others have created”.
