RHI scandal
The Renewable Heat Incentive scheme attempted to increase Northern Ireland’s use of renewable heating sources. But it turned into an embarrassing financial scandal that cost the taxpayer £490m.

Launched by Foster, this scheme led to the collapse of the Northern Ireland government in January 2017 when Martin McGuinness resigned as deputy first minister. There is still no government.

Foster said Sinn Féin’s standing aside was political. But as this timeline points out, Sinn Féin left after Foster refused to stand aside for her role in the scandal.

At an inquiry into the botched scheme, she denied claims that she prevented note taking at ministerial meetings. But the head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service, David Stirling, reported notes were not taken due to sensitivity over criticism.

Brexit

The DUP spent £282,000 on a pro-Brexit ad that did not run in Northern Ireland. This was part of a £435,000 donation to the DUP to campaign for Brexit. Foster said the donation was within the law.

Just a year after the Brexit referendum in August 2017, the Electoral Commission announced a £6,000 fine connected to a ‘Northern Ireland political donation’. It is alleged this fine is connected to the DUP donation.

Marriage equality and abortion
The DUP defends Northern Ireland’s position within the UK. And it continues that defence except when it comes to support for same-sex marriage or abortion.

It opposes same-sex marriage and in 2015, when a majority of representatives in the Northern Ireland parliament voted in favour of it, the DUP vetoed it. It maintains that position today. Senior DUP figures oppose abortion even in the case of rape.

Irish language
As The Canary previously reported, leaked draft documents of a deal between Sinn Féin and the DUP show it backtracked on Irish language rights.

The DUP claims to represent Northern Ireland yet opposes official recognition of the Irish language. Irish is important to Catholics in Northern Ireland who make up over 40% of the population.

They admittedly don't read. Snarlene didn't read RHI legislation (or even her own Tweets). Ian didn't read Katie's Tweet (or history books or maps going by today's embarrassment). Our Jolene didn't read the hat of the autistic meme (that'd be Ireland) and hopefully Davy S doesn't read the Sunday Life. It's either they don't read, can't read, or a pack of bigoted bastards. You choose.

The DUP are like spoilt brat racist children who expect daddy to either get them a job they'll only do when bothered, and because they want to pretend not to be layabouts.

Daddy never made them act like adults or grow up. Never faced consequences of their actions and so are now borderline sociopathic. An utterly hateful bunch.

Basically a party of Ross O'Carrol Kellys.

I actually feel really sorry for SF dealing with these people. And disgusted that post GFA a British govt would go into de-facto coalition with these people.

A second betrayal by Britain after Brexit.

And don’t forget...

Top spud David Crawford admits to knowing feck all about renewable energy but still didn’t feel the need to read a £100k commissioned report on RHI ,... Snarlene never read it either apparently :roll: ..a report which highlighted a lot of the flaws !!

Oh and the DUP don’t read the legal documents they sign up to ...

Of course they do read all theses things,,, they just claim ignorance & incompetence to get them out of a hole when the only alternative is a charge of corruption and/or deceit..

I would be inclined to go for your last comments in the post.

I think they only read what is necessary to get the cash from daddy.

If only. They're utterly lacking in humour.

That part reminds me of the prevaling culture in nEU Empire headquarters. How did they manage to be facing off each other ?

And there is a thread of decency and self awareness in Ross.

In any other democracy, the DUP would not exist. But they are voted for by a deeply infantalised electorate.
They're voted for by a minority with a siege mentality. How they got that is another matter.

Back to more serious matters:-

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/ireland-has-undermined-britain-for-over-100-years-1.3486305

TV presenter Robert Peston has suggested that Ireland has “undermined” British governments for at least the last century.

In an interview with prominent Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg, Mr Peston described the Tory as a keen student of British history, before saying: “Ireland has undermined, the issue of Ireland in so many different ways has undermined, British governments, you know, going back well over 100 years now.”

Mr Rees-Mogg responded by suggesting that the issue of Ireland had undermined British politics for “much more than 100 years. It’s a very long and complex history.”

The interview took place on Mr Peston’s eponymous Peston on Sunday programme on ITV.
Not many people know that.

There is something pleasurable in watching the demise of the "oh so virtuous"

Plenty of people know that.

However, if you took someone hostage in the first place, hard cheese if they turn out to be a stroppy little captive.
Sorry. I forgot the sarcastic emoji.
