    Good point. He may have blown the deal

    It does seem possible he is narcissistic. I wonder is this related to his sexual orientation?

    The optics say that May nixed the deal, so Leo can parade about as the party betrayed.

    Will be no United Ireland, that much is clear.

    Thank God we have the DUP looking after us, Leo looks some fool now.

    Both Ulster Prods and Shia Muslims who I know well have told me that they believe that homosexuality comes out of a neurotic self-love that prevents them from truly surrendering in love to someone else and therefore are intrinsically untrustworthy. Whether that is folk wisdom or ignorant prejudice- well I'm saying nahim (or course it might contain both). However I don't think he has character to give leadership to a country.

    The way the DUP are now an united Ireland is an inevitability. The DUP looks after bank balances and it's ego, it doesn't think in terms of the best interests of the PUL in the medium term no mind the long term, and even in the present term it's just a matter of votes and power for them. The PUL tribe is going to be a minority in NI really soon and step back for a moment and think....Are they making that looming reality the softest landing possible?

    Rubbish, the DUP made sure we were not shafted and left hanging onto the Republics tail coats.

    Britain is on the cusp of dissolution. I think that's clear to everyone now.

    A UI is inevitable but will be messy and unsightly with the politicians kickin' and screamin' against it.

    NI citizens can remain EU citizens if they want. They just have to apply for an Irish passport.
    Leo is demanding concessions that already exist.
    DUP must be laughing down their sleeves going into these talks.
    What a weak leader,

    Yes, if you've an Irish passport, you're an EU citizen.

    Some of these DUPers have Irish passports as well, they'll be EU citizens as long as they have one.

    You know what, I actually have more respect for the DUP, than the sorry excuse of "Nationalist" politicians we have and their pathetic cap-doffing, "shure it'll be grand" attitude.
    At least the DUP defend their voters.

    Uh they don't really though, under Paisley Mor that was true, but that is long ago now- they are incredibly corrupt and neglectful, and in order to mask their increasing corruption since Peter Robinson took over they have increasingly being banging away on tribalist drums in order to mask the ever greater mess they are making of things. This isn't to say that the Shinners aren't awful myopic gobshytes, they are, but they are still not the DUP.

    Well maybe Theresa May is some kind of genius - everyone else is playing draughts and she is playing a game of three dimensional chess and is thinking four moves ahead of everyone else.

    The other alternative is that she is clueless and she genuinely never considered what the party propping up her Government would think of her proposal.

    "The whole map of Europe has been transformed.....but as the deluge subsides and the waters fall short, we see the dreary steeples of Fermanagh and Tyrone emerging once again."
    Winston Churchill, 1922.

    Apt today.

    Most Brexiteers want May to walk away with no deal.
    Reading the comments on Britland, they seem happy that the DUP scuppered May's plans.

    He was a psychopath and a drunk but sometimes he could have a way with words and even be very witty.

    Watching UK news and Irish News, whilst the UK is running with this as their main bulletin it is no way sounding as desperate and angry when compared to the Irish side.
