The stark reality, as we told them time, and time, and time again, was once that ‘regulatory’ border was conceded it was never going to be taken off the table,” he added.
“If the Conservatives deal goes through, Northern Ireland will, well and truly, be a ‘place apart’ - we will be separated from our largest market, with differing legal systems, tax regimes, and held ‘accountable’ by special and joint EU committees,” he said.

I want, I want a pink pony.

Where has he been these last three years?

At least he ommitted to mention 'sensible' deal, or would that be too Arlene.

Brexit is booooooring.

Mr Aiken, a former Royal Navy submarine commander, yesterday rounded on the DUP, claiming they had not delivered and lacked influence in getting a Brexit deal acceptable to unionists.

He said: "We've heard the DUP claim that their days of influence in Westminster 'are not over'.

"Given that it was the DUP who made the catastrophic error of agreeing to a regulatory border in the Irish Sea on October 2 that paved the way for Boris Johnson's terrible deal, Northern Ireland and the Union can't afford to go through another Parliamentary term with the DUP being the sole voice of unionism from Northern Ireland in Westminster.

"Their pre-election pledges need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

"Arlene Foster has claimed that the DUP delivers better.

"If that were true, what happened to her pledge that 'We will not accept any form of regulatory divergence which separates Northern Ireland economically or politically from the rest of the United Kingdom'?

The DUP’s days being the big dogs in Westminster are over.

That’s why we have Arlene Foster out today beginning to prepare her base for a move on a language act.

The DUP would be irrelevant without a return of Stormont.

FIRST it was a bridge to Scotland – now the DUP wants to hook-up Northern Ireland to power generated by Iceland's volcanoes.

The party's manifesto argues that "interconnection is central to future energy strategy" but rather than the North-South high-voltage power lines advocated in its 2017 Westminster policy programme, the latest document raises the possibility of laying a 700-mile cable along the bed of the North Atlantic.

The DUP are like a drowning man - flailing around as their world disappears.

That ol joke about putting the butchers apron on an ASS'S back to get it elected by their supporters is not so funny, quite the contrary as a matter of fact.

Yet west Belfast, the most benighted shit hole in the UK, continually elects Shinners that do nothing for them but fill in their benefit forms and blame the Brits for all their problems.
