Thread: DUP demanding a seat at the Brexit negotiating table

  1. #1

    Default DUP demanding a seat at the Brexit negotiating table

    According to the Belfast Telegraph anyway.


    Ah sure why not? And throw in Michelle O'Neill while you're at it! It would be pure comic gold - Arlene in a perpetual tantrum, stamping her feet - and Michelle yapping at a billion miles an hour and sounding like a machine gun! The politicians on the mainland and the European negotiators won't know what hit them, but they will be very entertained, I am certain!

    If May does end up going and some a'hole hardline Brexiteer takes over they probably would bring the DUP on board... if it's possible within the negotiations setup to change your team mid game and/or bring in some substitutes etc...

    Sure wasn't Rees-Mogg thanking the DUP for Monday's shambles...

    The UK really is going down the sh!tter.

    A DUP micro-minority run UK government with the Tories signing a confidence and supply agreement, Labour mesmerised by it all and Europe chuckling away.

    I'm sure the DUP bringing their vast knowledge of international trade treaties to the negotiations would ensure the UK get the best possible deal.

    If Mrs May wants to adjust her negotiating team, that's her prerogative. Nothing to do with the EU. We'll talk to whoever the UK sends.

    Sturgeon will demand a seat as will the Welsh.

    Why the Hell isn't Ireland at the table?

    I said this months ago

    When the future of Ireland is being discussed

    - then we need to be at the table

    Simon Coveney is useless

    - when we get thrown under a bus on this one

    - we will see how useless he is....
