At the demise of empire, City of London financial interests created a web of secrecy jurisdictions that captured wealth from across the globe and hid it in a web of offshore islands. Today, up to half of global offshore wealth is hidden in British jurisdictions and Britain and its dependencies are the largest global players in the world of international finance.

This was a very interesting watch and it clears up for me as to why Brexit was started and that it will happen no matter what party is at the helm....because there not really in charge.
Never knew you had 2 separate entities in London with 2 separate Mayors.

I also think that the "City of London" is where the money came from to pay the DUP to back Brexit.
DUP are tied in with some very powerful companies/people now which is very worrying

“I am the leader of the Democratic Unionist party. The clue is in the title." Some man so she is.

Hi which of those reprobates was it stood on side of a lorry at local Klan meeting show of strength and introduced himself as a sectarian bigot to wild applause? Maybe 10/20 years ago now probably during marching season. Remember seeing a clip of it.

Possibly Willie McCrea standing alongside Billy Wright you could be referring to.

DUP on for voting against the Tory budget if they don't get their own way on Brexit, I'd say they're clean fucked, the Tories will discard them at the opportune moment for whatever suit them best, bad bad move by Arlene.

Looks like they have been kicked into touch. Delightful viewing. I'd say Barnier had a right chuckle into himself yesterday at the 2 dolly birds!  ;D

Twas the only deal that was ever on the cards the DUP ultimately dont matter but the key question is....Can May get it thru Parliment?

She's got 50 odd MPs at least who will vote against her Checkers deal and you could likely add a few to that
Where are other votes coming from?
SNP and LibDems will likely vote anything down regarding Brexit
This is also the deal that Labour would reach with the EU but would they support it in opposition with the prospect of a GE in the subsequent turmoil of no deal?

We've been here before.  There's plenty of time and space for them to f**k things up yet.

I voted to leave. It was a Lexit vote (protest vote for leftists) rather than a Brexit one. It was also a vote for political destabilisation and that has come to pass. It has forced the establishment southern parties into being more nationalistic. It has put the DUP into a real meltdown and has put unification onto the table.

I read Barnier's statement today where he is laying out the terms of the agreement. It is very much not what the DUP want but I think the Brits will have no choice but to accept it as at the end of the day it is 27 v 1. So the DUP either have to do what they are told and stick with the Tories or risk a GE where Labour will be favorites to win. They will not risk a Corbyn lead Labour government so they will have to do what they are told. All just my humble opinion of course but it is how I see this playing out.

Of course even if the DUP back May there is still no guarantee she will get an agreement through and a GE may well happen anyway.

The only thing would now maybe be a concern is if May is throwing the DUP under the bus on Brexit what could she try and offer them to keep them on board to get the next budget passed?

* No Military prosecutions.
* More Dough.
* A few house of lords seats.
* Direct Rule.

The DUP will do what keeps them in power, they won't care what British public think of them, just what their voters here think.
