One government's boggle eyed terrorist sympathisers are another government's patriots.
This whole mess is down to unprincipled cuntery. Major, who I have great respect for, refused to have anything to do with the DUP, eventually at the cost of his place as PM. He gets surprisingly little credit for this, or for his pivotal role in driving the peace process in NI.
The current mess in Downing Street is down to the lack of spine displayed by a succession of cowards in my view. Cozying up to the DUP is fine if you have no regard for the consequences of your actions.
EDIT: Sorry @keith1962 there is an echo in here....
