Shouldn't the DUP have negotiated on this then? Surely they knew it was coming?

If the DUP try to interfere in the rules on paying for abortion in England then maybe the English parties will feel like interfering in the abortion rules in NI. This was a smart move from the DUP's point of view. "We will leave you alone if you leave us alone"

Maybe, but the abortion laws with be changed here soon enough. Same as gay marriage. They'll be passed eventually. So, what have the dup gained (when they happen)?

They maintain their lofty position of being our moral masters.  No abortions and no gays legally married on their watch. It's all about sex with the DUP, isn't it. Maybe they're the new Catholic Church. Or boys with fingers in the dyke.

if there were abortion clinics in the north they would be some of  busiest in the world as 5000 woman from the south would be using them every year.

I'd imagine it's to do with the Tory party forming a government by bribing a bunch of religious fundamentalists with very close ties to terrorism and drug dealing.

What point are you trying to make ?

This is the point....Emma's now my MP [unfortunately], her dad's "wonderful", according to her & there's pics of Robinson, in his red beret days consorting with her gun-running father, in the past, when it suited the DUP.

The DUP have tried to airbrush that side of history completely out of existence - some of us don't have such short memories.

The DUP is weird. I don't understand how it retained its fruitcake policies after becoming the biggest prod party in NI. Do people like Dodds and Donaldson, who in another time would be leaders in the UUP, really believe Climate change is a fraud and that a hard Brexit will benefit protestant voters?

Do the DUP actually know what Deal they got from the tories. I feel they are going to learn a very hard lesson on dealin with the brits.

The DUP is set to back the Tories in a vote today on Brexit and not a penny has been handed over. I have a feeling the DUP have got a payment/promises under the table.
