May has been given a very stark warning by Sammy Wilson a DUP MP. If the Brexit deal doesn’t go their way then they have no qualms about withdrawing their support for the Tories at Westminster.
DUP leader Arlene Foster said that the government had a “clear understanding that the DUP will not countenance any arrangement that could lead to a new border being created in the Irish Sea”.
Worth remembering that the DUP struck a deal with the Conservative government in June, agreeing to support Tory policies at Westminster, in return for an extra £1bn in government spending for Northern Ireland.
We can’t help wondering if maybe a top-up to that £1bn might not just help to come to some arrangement that suits everyone.
