As ever not correct!
Never once would I or have I criticised my prime minister for speaking to major figures within the U.K. Emphatically and without equivocation, I would criticise them for not doing so

However, I would always criticise my prime minister and her party for the utter hypocrisy of trying to vilify the Labour Party for their contacts with a party for their links with Irish terrorism when she herself has sucked up to the dup with its links to Irish terrorism , purely in order to hang on to power not for the good of the country but purely to hang on to power . All this without any serious consideration of the effects on the peace process .To entertain the idea of not speaking to all parties when major Blair brown and Cameron have all done so bleats sheepishly of right wing press dog whistles. Sinn fein has been the co lead party within both Ulster and Northern Ireland for over twenty years!
The fact that the tories tried to humiliate the leader of the liberals for his deeply held beliefs yet cannot see the hypocrisy when they are sucking up to the dups with its patent anti homosexuality and yet so much more, just shows how rotten are their thinking within the Tory party
I hate to bring this to your attention, but the Fine Gael is the governing party in Eire.

We agree on something . fine Gael supply the government in the republic of ireland

Sinn fein continues to be the co lead party in northern ireland and ulster with the second most MPs and tds

It is surely incumbent on our country's prime minister to speak to all parties who are likely to.be affected by any agreement with the DUP

The peace process is the single most important issue affecting the united kingdom

Of course the WObbly woman should speak to the leader of sf

To suggest otherwise is not the way forward

Just sent this to my MP

Hi

I consider myself as a caring conservative, with a social conscience and liberal views

I have voted for the Tory party for most of my life, including for you at this election

I voted for brexit, but wanted a soft brexit, it was about sovereignty for me, and the direction of travel. I thought if we could not join the Euro (which I agreed with) then we should not be in an ever increasing federal Europe

I still hoped for an old style single market.

I also thought Theresa May had god ideas and was moving the party to where I thought it should be

I respect Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbot for what they stand for, but they are rebels not fit to govern

I just want to make you aware that I am very uneasy with a government supported by the DUP

IMO the DUP are racist bigots and homophobic

I wish to distance myself from this chaotic coalition

I will not support the Tories whilst in a partnership with the DUP

Stuart ****
actually got a very good and personal reply

probably why the Conservatives are struggling to form an alliance with these bigots

My cousin (a liberal democrat party member) points out that not all party members agree with policy - the answer you got may have been from someone who doesn't agree with the idea.

Similarly, while my cousin is liberal democrat, he voted to leave the EU, against the party line.

A personal view I have recently posted to Facebook

Personally I'd have loved to have been Corbyn or Fallon at the last election, knowing you can promise the earth, and never have to deliver. When one day a Labour party, if ever, gets to a position where they need help we'll see which money tree they pluck the money from. Remember there won't be any rich to tax they'll have all jetted off to pastures new where they can keep their hard earned. oh and btw I am not a fan of TM the quicker she goes the better.

I agree with your sentiment regarding Theresa May, however you do know what the realistic alternative is. It's a bit choosing between Ronnie and Reggie Kray.

This continues to be the most inept performance by any Prime Minister in living memory. Chaos is an understatement and things are completely unstable!

This is all from needless attempt to "crush the saboteurs" and to become a dictatorship.

Her time is sure to be short, not because of Corbyn and the left, but from disquiet from within.

Corbyn's growth in popularity has defo piled on more pressure, but you're right in that the biggest threat to May is internal.

In theory giving money to Northern Ireland is fine by me, but the way this has been done is disgusting! Trying to buy power in this way should not be allowed, it's amazing how quickly money can appear when it comes to saving one's skin!

I fully understand that the tories wish to hang on to power and are fully prepared to buy votes from the dup maybe costing £1billion
What I do not understand is why the uk taxpayer is being asked to foot the bill and not Conservative Central office
Is this what we mean when we are DUPed?

Unless the Northern Irish can come to some agreed position in the next couple of days , then we will have the nonsense position that Westminster will be pulling the strings of government in Northern Ireland, whilst , even more scary, the Northern Irish are pulling the strings of government in Westminster

Brilliant!

Strong and Stable rules ok

this is nothing whatsoever to do with the election , which incidentally was won by nobody .

our country is being managed by incompetents who will buy votes

i would always agree that mr corbyn is not capable of leading an effective government

however
mrs wobbly has caused chaos when there was no need .
she has asked for a mandate for her policies and not got one.



to have lost a majority shows not just mediocrity but arrogant incompetence, and they are in government. that is the major source of worry we should all have
