May hoping for 'constructive relationship' with creationist homophobes who think Pope is Satan
09-06-17


THE Conservative Party has reassured Britain that the government being propped up by swivel-eyed, religious lunatics will be ‘totally fine’.

Ulster’s Democratic Unionist Party was founded in 1971 by the late Ian Paisley while he was stabbing an Action Man he had dressed up as Pope Paul VI.

It is now looking forward to influencing government policy in a wide range of demented areas.

DUP leader Arlene Foster confirmed the party would support a minority Conservative government on condition that Theresa May stands on a massive orange Bible and denounces Roman Catholicism as ‘Beelzebub’s Travelling Circus’.

She added: “Obviously we’ll also be needing a wee ban on abortion, the gayness, scientists and strong liquor.”

A Downing Street spokesman said: “It’s very important we have a strong and stable government. But it’s okay if it’s also a tiny bit insane.”

LOL at some of the ignorance on here.

DUP manifesto (http://dev.mydup.com/images/uploads/publications/DUP_Wminster_Manifesto_2017_v5.pdf).

Discussion of what they want on Corporation Tax here (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-northern-ireland-2017-40217564). They want it reduced to at least 12.5% (to compete with the south). EU rules would require, if they get that, a reduction in their block grant. They will want that reduction to go away once Brexit is complete. They would certainly support lower CT for the rest of the UK. They are a low-tax, efficiency in government, party. They are hardline on security / law and order. They want to give intelligence services greater power to investigate potential terrorists. They want increased spending on education and the NHS and want to keep the pensions triple lock (my guess is they will win that argument, with the third component perhaps reducing from 2.5% to 2.0 or 1.5.

In short, on fiscal policy and law and order they are pretty much classic conservatives along the lines of Thatcher and what the Tories used to be. Low tax, limit bureaucracy, law and order, but not unwilling to spend on public services.

On social issues like abortion, they are hard right. But then, so is their constituency. Northern Ireland is not England or Scotland.

On homosexual rights, they are about where most people were 25 years ago (they think it is immoral, they oppose gay marriage or any particular endorsement of homosexuality), and to the left of where most people were 50 years ago (they aren't trying to outlaw gay sex).

On Northern Ireland issues, they are hard-line unionist, but they do work with nationalists/republicans who repudiate violence. Paisley and Martin McGuinness were known as the "Chuckle Brothers", they became good friends. They'd throw red meat to their constituents because that's the way politics work in Northern Ireland, but they worked together in the Assembly. They've always been able to attract a reasonable percentage of Roman Catholic votes, probably because they took a very hard line against terrorism and the terrorist thugs weren't helping Catholics, either.

On Europe, they are pro-Brexit but want a "frictionless border" with the south, not a "hard border" (LOL, our daftie Scot just makes stuff up as he goes along, doesn't he?), and ease of trade with the Irish Republic.

Indeed. But there is nothing new in that manifesto, really. It mostly tracks what they were saying 2 years ago when people thought they might be in the position they are now. This party changes very, very slowly, if at all. :) Anyone who has been watching them for years won't be surprised by anything in that manifesto. And the stuff about corporation tax, the triple lock, gay rights, abortion, and their views on Brexit and the border with the Republic have been reported on quite a bit in the last 24 hours or so. There's no need to make stuff up.

There's a suggestion that there may be a legal challenge available to prevent the DUP allying with the Tories - that under the Good Friday Agreement the UK government must remain neutral, particularly when there is a risk (as there is right now with no Executive Ministers appointed in Stormont) of Direct Rule.

I knew that you ****tard, it was just to point out that DUP aren't all exactly Tory lovers. As it is, it looks like that the Tories are lying again, first stating that there has been a 'confidence and supply' agreement and not stating that in fact a final agreement has to be signed after the DUP lot said there wasn't. You love liars don't you?

Hard DUP is a bit like UKIP, except replace the hatred of all Muslims with a hatred of all Roman Catholics.

If May can't negotiate a strong and stable deal with the DUP, what chance has she got with the EU?

But we're all going to be OK - Brexiters got us into this clusterfeck of a mess, they'll have a way out (probably involves blaming the EU, although I'm not sure "I blame the EU" is exactly a way to do business or run a country)
