If there's any attempt that in order to keep Dublin in the EU [!] that they're [UK TORY GOV] prepared to have Northern Ireland treated differently than the rest of the United Kingdom then they can't rely on our vote, because they [UK TORY GOV] have undertaken an agreement with us, our votes for their support for the Union. Their support for the Union there diminishes, then our votes will not be there.
It seems, Mr Wilson is unwilling, more likely incapable, of calculating the value of DUP "votes" since passage and litigation of the Repeal/Withdrawal Bill. The establishing purpose of it abrogated parliamentary ratification of A50 terms to UK gov. DUP support for it was punked by May and some of them may be just beginning to fear their "Cameron veto" is now obsolete, useless for purposes of coercing any PM to affect "independent" DUP rule of NI.
That was a flawed assumption on several levels of play with Downing before BREXIT. The pipe never gets to play the piper, does it.
At that time, not-Tory MPs constituted for the minority gov the barrier to any semblance of parliamentary consensus on the means to implement BREXIT. This reluctant coalition objected, in general, not to BREXIT but Tory gov patent refusals to conform to EU regulatory authority. Now that UK gov organs indicate UK gov has exhausted its miserable strategy to coerce the EU terms to its demands ("capitulated"), the reluctant coalition will fall in line to affirm Repeal/Withdrawal Bill's EU conforming amendments, thus obviating Mr Wilson's so-called "agreement" with UK conservatives. These potentates are a dull lot.
10 or more votes needed for May's BREXIT majority ("Union") can be bought from the coalition PLUS conservative Leavers. DUP will get BREXIT. The only motive for them is ensuring, as it always has been, Who is rules that pitiful province of Ireland?
Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
