Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"they have already ruled out voting for a no confidence motion"

Once you rule out that option you are more or less writing yourself out of the game - particularly with the new rules around snap elections which give a government a couple of weeks grace to find a majority if they lose a confidence vote.

The only reason this isn't disqualifying for the DUP is because they can live with the default outcome - a no deal Brexit - which will all be the fault of an intransigent Irish Government, of course, in DUP mythology, in any case.
