Dublin using North for its own ends on Brexit, claims Foster

Government's approach `careless' as only EU will reimpose border, says DUP leader

Speaking after a meeting with Theresa May in 10 Downing Street, the DUP leader said the Government's approach in advance of next month's EU summit was careless.

"I have to say I was rather concerned to see the way they were trying to use Northern Ireland to get maximum leverage in relation to the negotiations at present. I think that's careless and I don't agree with that," she said.

"Obviously, we have worked very hard to have a peaceful Northern Ireland and it would be very wrong to suggest that leaving the European Union would in some way threaten that peace. Because of course it's the people of Northern Ireland who have brought about the peace. Others have supported us and we fully recognise that," she told The Irish Times.

is a trait of a certain personality, or mental, disorder: In this case asserting cooperation while obstructing cooperation within domestic and between international governments' agencies to resolve incompatible business goals. The formula of all lies is to deny true facts, thereby representing false reality. All lies are unequivocal in these facts. That statement renders the patent, true disrepair of litigation, the conflict, between the parties all the more appalling. RES IPSA LOQUITOR: There is no peace, because there is no agreement.

When one encounter persons such as this, escalation of conflict which they seek is inevitable. The logical course of action to preclude further harm is to remove oneself from conflict, the root of which nurtured by the liar, until such time the afflicted are whole and amenable to mutually constructive relations.

People need to keep in mind that the DUP are not exactly rational players.
