The DUP criticise Barnier for not understanding unionism, but then refuse to meet him. What a joke!
Not much point meeting anyone when you're only contribution to anything us "No!" And "We want to stay in the 17th Century"

They can't get their heads around the fact that Brexit isn't all about them.  They actually thought Barnier was coming over to mediate between them and the Irish government over border arrangements post-Brexit.  When they realised that the EU doesn't really give a toss about the DUP or Unionism they threw a hissy fit.

Must be hard to understand that a chap representing 400,000,000 people in negotiations with a Government representing 60,000,000 doesn't give 2 flying fcuks for a group representing 240,000 who live in a fantasy world.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

They are completely exposed now on the international scene and this will be their downfall. The big players have realised how backward they are and are just ignoring them. They are starting to realise that they are pretty much irrelevant and this will kill them. Enjoyable viewing to be honest.  ;D

Jamie is top of the right (naturally) alongside the really fit enthusiastic guy who will run all day but who doesn't know what end of the stick to hold, and the guy sitting at the club bar with the XXXL county top on, who was decent at underage but never bothered his arse, and is living on past memories.

The UK has no leverage. At some point the Tories will cave in on the customs union and it won't matter what the DUP want. The DUP didn't analyse what Brexit meant. They chose it like Arlene would choose washing powder in the supermarket.

Barnier is in Derry (or Londonderry if you're Mary-Lou) this morning.  You have to wonder what the UUP are at.  They were (reluctantly, maybe) Remainers and NI voted to remain.  Now they're following the DUP around ::)  You know you're in trouble when Martina Anderson has one up on you!

===============================================================

Sinn Fein accused Northern Irelandís two unionist MEPs of ďbad mannersĒ today because they were not in Derry to meet Michel Barnier, the EUís chief Brexit negotiator. Northern Irelandís third MEP, Sinn Feinís Martina Anderson, was there, and she claimed that the DUP MEP Diane Dodds and Ulster Unionist MEP Jim Nicholson were failing to represent the unionist community by ďsnubbingĒ Barnier. She said:

"I think itís unfortunate that they havenít turned up. The parliament is not open today.  The European parliament is closed, so thereís no reason why both of the MEPs from the unionist population shouldnít be here.  All three of us should be maximising the opportunity when Michel Barnier is in our constituency.  I think itís political bad manners that the MEPs - and I have to say the two council leads from the DUP and UUP - were both invited here this morning, and neither of them have turned up.  I donít think really when you have a chief negotiator coming from the EU that itís a good signal to send out because I donít think itís representative of the people, the protestant, unionist, loyalist people, who would want their own representatives taking the opportunity to express their views".

Last week Dodds and Nicholson issued a joint statement welcoming Barnierís visit but expressed disappointment that it was announced by a Sinn Fein MP.

The UU have lost the plot. Nesbitt managed to articulate a rational line on Brexit, warning pretty much of a border in the Irish Sea. They didn't listen to him, so Swann took over and turned the UU into DUP lite.

Absolutely, and I would have thought better of Jim Nicholson at least, he must understand the issues perfectly well.

I wasn't even decent at underage...but the rest is fairly accurate!

When the DUP took its pro-Brexit position, it will have known this reflected the majority of unionist opinion but that would not have justified knowingly leading unionism over a cliff. It must also be remembered few expected Leave to win, so the DUP set itself up to lose just to commune with its base on an apparently arcane question, three years before the next scheduled election Ė an eternity in political terms.
