I dont think she has a valid point but that is of no importance as the EU can do what the hell it likes.

The UK is leaving and the EU is going to teat it as an outsider. What the hell did the DUP expect?

Update:

"The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, has told the Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, that Ireland's interests come first in the Brexit negotiations.

Speaking in Dublin, Mr Tusk said nothing must be done to risk the peace process or the Good Friday Agreement.

He said every EU leader he has met has expressed support for Ireland's position."

Among quite a large section of the British media, Tusk's stand is seen as threatening.
I think they are all deluded......but.....just saying.
Leo should go on a diplomatic mission to London to try to deflect some of this shyte.

Could you imagine the curent British media response to Leo in London?
With a straight face they'll be asking why he's siding with Johnny Foreigner over Brexit.

There would undoubtedly be risks involved, but I think he could handle it.
Bear in mind, approximately half of the British electorate (maybe more) already agree that Brexit is Bonkers.

I'd say remain would win comfortably in another referendum.

However, most of the media are controlled by those who want out ahead of the new EU rules on tax havens.
Follow the money......

Bad faith, eh?

https://www.rte.ie/news/ireland/2018/0223/942975-northern-ireland/

DUP leader Arlene Foster has said it would be "astonishing" if the British government granted funding for legacy inquests without an overall agreement.
Foster decision on inquests 'unlawful and flawed' - BBC News

A judge has ruled that Arlene Foster's decision to block funding for the lord chief justice's plan for legacy inquests was unlawful and flawed.

He said the former first minister was wrong to think she could postpone the decision until after political agreement on dealing with the past.


Seems to be bad faith all around...

'Ireland first,' says Tusk after Varadkar meeting - BBC News
Leo was on Newstalk this morning saying that he was looking out for any kind of weakening of attitude among his EU colleagues in his various meetings with them over the last few months and has found the opposite.
