    There are interesting opportunities. Might work out and might not. Good bunch of people running it.

    I think they call it democracy.
    I'm sorry to say that in this case I think it was about not wanting to be in charge of the Tory Party for Brexit. There was no way Boris was going to be allowed to take Dave's job after the result last year but I really don't think she or any of the top of the Remain supporters thought it through. So she set off with a massive majority and set about turning it into the worst position she could in as few weeks.

    No one in their right mind would have brought out the policies that she did and expect a winning vote...

    However I do think she expected comrade K to be wiped out by the uKip contingent and at the end was probably bricking herself.

    Is it EU funded? I thought it was EU financed. Might have it wrong.

    That was the old deal I think. EU money replace with the some of the 'magic billion'. Anyway...

    "Around eight years after it was first announced, cash was finally earmarked for the York Street Interchange development as part of the DUP's £1bn deal with the Tories."

    "The bulk of the cash needed to build it, around 40%, was originally due to come from the EU."

    NI is part of the UK, and just as happens in Scotland, their politicians fought for more money for their constituents. And they got it. What's the problem?
