Trust in Theresa plummets even lower with this underhand deal. What makes it even worse is that it’s a deal that never needed to be made in the first place. It’s not like the DUP were ever going to vote to bring down the government and allow Jeremy Corbyn, friendly as he is to Irish Republicans, into power. This deal proves Mrs May’s lack of political sense and negotiating stupidity. She’s given away a large chunk of money. She’s put the Peace Process at risk. She's p***ed off the Welsh. She’s undermined the Union even more. She’s angered the English regions. And all for nothing. And this is the person who’s supposed to get Britain a good deal from the EU?
And whilst on the subject of incompetence, let's take a look at how the Tories casually throw our money at unnecessary projects.
* What about the cost of the unnecessary EU Referendum? £150 million. Kerching!
* What about the cost of the unnecessary General Election? Another £150 million. Kerching!
* What about the cost of the unnecessary deal with the DUP? Around £1.5 billion. Kerching! Kerching! Kerching!
And don't forget what they said about some of the costings Labour mentioned in their recent manifesto. This is where hypocrisy and hubris meet. I know I'm not alone in thinking that we deserve better from our government.
