    When it's someone else's suggestion:
    It's rubbish, threatens are place at the heart of the union.

    DUP: But when we suggest it now there's a different story.
    Was our idea all along.

    If they want to tell us their ramming Scots Gaelic down out throats despite our protests then we can let them do it.
    If they want to stay in the common zone so that it's harder to get to London than it is to Dublin than let them call it what they want.

    Kick in the balls for the fenians. How awful etc etc

    The OP asks what the payoff is for the DUP...? i suggest it's saving themselves from political oblivion when their white collar support base starts to feel the full effects of a hard border.....

    Wrapping themselves in the Union Jack won't keep them warm now the money is drying up for their pellet boilers.....
    Unionists could have their cake and eat it in this scenario. Remain in UK but be a channel for UK exporters to EU if - as has to be the case - the GB-EU trade agreement is more restrictive than being a member of the customs union.

    I can see the sense of unionists accepting a CU solution when your own government doesn't want to put boots on the ground in NI again.

    As an act of political survival a CU will allow the best of both worlds, protection from the worst effects of Brexit whilst retaining the core national identity of the DUP voter base.
