I'm sure nobody in, of or with politics.ie would in any way impugn the uprightness, probity and integrity [Editor: that's enough tautology, Redfellow. Don't over-egg the pudding.] of the Democratic Unionist Party.

So, I'm sure we all will be horrified that Jim Fitzpatrick's BBC NI investigation chose to make all kinds of insinuations and even produce evidence to the contrary. Indeed, to adapt Captain Renault, I'm shocked! Shocked to find that dodgy doing was going on in there. Let us trust that the UK Electoral Commission, the FBI and all-comers may (or may not) feel the same.

You're doing just fine.

I assume the first post UI government will be an FF/DUP coalition.
First item on the agenda for government ...

Picking the setlist and who gets to play the accordion at the hooleys.....?

Next item...

Will anyone rat out the DUP TD's if they open a tab in the Dail bar and will they ever actually have to pay it....?

Anything else of importance i've missed...?

Should an FFer or a Duper get the contract for stationery; 50,000 brown envelopes, A5, self-adhesive.

Those of us who live in a foreign country aren't allowed BBC iplayer, that's something to think about come the Border Poll.

Now that Arlene went practically sacrilegious on the weekend - they might as well open the Dail bar on a Sunday

Just as well they would be on the same side or the DUPers would be screaming about Fenian discrimination....

Let's see if someone can by-pass the DM control, and help Youtube on its way ...

The first intimations of all this came from C4 News:
[video=youtube;De1b_1veqzs]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De1b_1veqzs[/video]

BBC NI and Jim Fitzpatrick has taken that further, by looking at the man who filtered £435,000 (a curious sum in itself, almost as if it was the price on the packet, plus 'commission') to the DUP.

Meanwhile, some essentials are here:

That might easily have been half a million euro at the time.

DUP were the patsies here, that money was only resting in their account.

It doesnt alter the fact that they have a record as long as your arm of dodgy financial dealings and individual prominent members have enriched themselves to a degree that seems incommensurate with their role as public servants. petunia
