Lemme get this straight. Labour's leadership instructed the party to abstain on whether to run a second referendum? What's Corbyn playing at?
They didn't think it had the best chance of winning

At this stage the HoC is like a bullfight with the Tories as the dying bull
Sure it's only the league

They will if the UK Government have a credible plan that they can work together....

Nope, you're right. EU won't. ;)

What worries me is what have the DUP got in terms of concessions for backing this deal.
I would say they have the governments word that there will be no border poll
A get out for RHI nama etc etc
Promises that protestant communities will continue to receive more than their fair share of grant money etc etc.
Here it comes----------
A Westminster committee is to hold an inquiry into deep cuts to RHI payments.

The NI Affairs Committee hearings follow complaints that the legislation, fast-tracked through Parliament, did not receive sufficient scrutiny.

The cuts would bring payments for the most common boilers here from around £13,000 to £2,000 - the second time they have been slashed.

Some businesses with boilers said it would hit their cash flow and threaten their viability.

Bollocks.

I believe (open to correction) they've got grants totalling more than the cost of install by now - and they are still getting heat cheaper than any alternative form.

Jim Shannon(DUP) said on the radio it's entirely the EU's fault and the DUP and the tories should be trusted with the Irish border.

They are back at the table and now they seem to be in favour of the backstop just as long as it is policed by Stormont (when/if up and running again).

Will the EU agree?

Funnily enough I commented earlier that the DUP were being bought yet again. I wonder how much of that money would go towards getting the executive up and running on its own. And yes, Westminster and the EU would have to agree to it. Don't think that will happen. The DUP have did a huge U turn on this backstop deal and I think the Tories have finally figured out how to play them.

As patriotic and holy as they claim to be they are basically self serving and money driven so they shouldnít have been that hard to figure out.
