    Default DUP hints at NI staying in customs union?


    https://europaunited.eu/2017/11/25/w...customs-union/

    In a speech set to be delivered to her party members at the annual Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) conference today, DUP leader, Arlene Foster will tell the conference that she believes in an open border for goods and people on the island of Ireland. This announcement ... is beginning to give rise to a theory that the British team will put forward a motion that Northern Ireland remain in the customs union.
    Intriguing stuff. If true is this part of some strange, complex political choreography that allows Britain to move on to trade, and what is the DUP's price for this?

    The awful feeling you get as a unionist when you know your countrymen and women in London have your back

    It might be for the DUP's farmer rump if they can't get their milk over the border for processing....

    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.....

    Well let's see the contours first since it's not known why the duppers have moved this direction.

    Cause the north would collapse otherwise, cause their is a catch but it looks interesting.
