My take is May knows Brussels will reject Brady move, and she'll call a general election (with A50 extension) fighting it on a Unionist ticket.
I see this particular crackpot loon has just gone full troll now ,,, super stuff :roll:That storm in a teacup was just an excuse to cause trouble. If grants for renewable energy wood chip/pellets are too high, just reduce them. The SEAI are constantly adjusting the rates of grants in ROI; nobody even notices.
Ha, Snarlene could smash incompetence, arrogance & corruption records but that’s about it ... oh and maybe along with her halfwit 17th century mates, she’d smash any semblance of unionist strategy to smithereens :?MPs have backed seeking "alternative arrangements" to replace the Irish backstop in Theresa May's Brexit plan.

Arlene smashes the return as usual...
I'll grant ye that ye have that redeeming sense of humour but I notice that ye typically dodged the substantive point nonetheless. Come on-give it a go. Explain to me how Arlene is the British Isles stateswoman when she doesn't come from an isle-not even a peninsula. There's a great bloody 500km border between her 'country' and a 'foreign' country. Doesn't sound very British Isles to mepffft, moi's middle name tis conciliatory, tis right in between King and Billy...

Reject the prime minister’s deal and usher in an economy-wrecking no deal, or endorse it and risk unionist wrath at home?www.theguardian.com
The dilemma results from some grievous miscalculations. For Eurosceptic kudos, the party backed leave in the 2016 referendum, neither expecting the Leave campaign to win nor anticipating the profound implications for Northern Ireland.
They compounded the error by depicting checks in the Irish Sea as an existential threat, rather than a technical issue with manageable political ramifications. Wielding leverage over Theresa May’s government blinded the DUP to danger and engendered a giddy sense of unprecedented power. “Unionism has never had so much influence in parliament,” Foster boasted in 2017.
That seems a long time ago”.
Can Mrs responsible but not accountable survive the creation of the sea border ?
Except that ever happened. Even Ian Paisley said long ago that "the people are British but the cows are Irish" so they were never against checks between the island of Ireland and Britain, per se.They compounded the error by depicting checks in the Irish Sea as an existential threat, rather than a technical issue with manageable political ramifications.
Your predictions of "a sea border" are somewhat premature.Can Mrs responsible but not accountable survive the creation of the sea border ?
This is a great thread.....the world listens? Turn the clock back? These are the people that think the earth is flat......and 6000 years old....and want a minority veto.Cometh the hour cometh the internationally renowned stateswoman, Ulsters own Norn Iron lady steps forth to lead her people to the promised land. Not wan to sit on her laurels this British Isle's first lady has taken upon herself to lead the entire UK in telling the EU imperialist just where to stick their sunshine and has the mexicants on the run...
DUP leader Arlene Foster said she believes the plan can unify a number of strands in the Brexit debate and urged the Prime Minister to get behind it.
It also gives a feasible alternative to the backstop proposed by the European Union which would split the United Kingdom or keep the entire United Kingdom in the Customs Union and Single Market. Importantly, this proposal would also offer a route towards negotiating a future trade relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union.
If the Prime Minister is seeking to find a united front, both between elements in her own party and the DUP, in the negotiations which she will enter with the European Union, then this is a proposition which she should not turn her back on.
There is no better time to advance this alternative given the confusion and disarray which is now manifesting itself in Brussels. This has been displayed both by the contradictory EU statements and the panic stricken behaviour of the Irish government.

The difference between the two leaders tis remarkable, Arlene spakes and the world listens, Mary Loo tells the drones she only wants a border poll if there's a hard brexit and no wan even noticed...
HahahahahahaExcept that ever happened. Even Ian Paisley said long ago that "the people are British but the cows are Irish" so they were never against checks between the island of Ireland and Britain, per se.
What the DUP were against was remaining in the EU Customs union while Britain left, and having no democratic means of ever escaping from it.
Your predictions of "a sea border" are somewhat premature.
We'll have to wait and see what emerges from "the tunnel" and then see whether it is acceptable to the parliament.
As always with these things, the divil is in the detail.
