Reply September 21, 2019 Louis Lingg and the Bombs Ahhh, Laura K, an evil tory only slightly less evil than Theresa May herself (and her terrorist DUP accomplices). Well done BBC: a biased bunch of tory scumbags. If you just did one or two fair bits of news we'd forgive all this but you don't! It's just constant tory bullshit and it makes us sick! Reply September 21, 2019 Tom Sapwell So the Tories lied about Corbyn being an 'IRA loving terrorist sympathiser' only to themselves put power before peace and stability in Northern Ireland. Reply September 21, 2019 Shane Lynch Arlene Foster your embittered attitude towards Catholics is a result of seeing your face getting UGLIER every time you look in the mirror and because of this you need to take your frustrations out on someone, Beware of the future N.I. Catholics. LoL from a N.I. Prod. Reply September 21, 2019 Cider Eagles DUP turn my stomache. Reply September 21, 2019 Dr Peter jones clearly May lost the election due to bubble thinking…the DUP could is correct in its quest to save the contry from terminal breakdown and rioting…. The DUP does not want us to live in a country where there is almost 4 million people staving in our society.They do not want further abuse of the blind and disabled in our communities.they want tax hikes for the rich NOT tax cutsThey want new roads and infrastructure in Northern islandThey want more ship building of new navy shipsThey want limited incentives for training where the region does not have skills such as nurses,engineers,computer engineering,Bio tech and sciences This seems reasonable demands which both sides in Noethern Island want…what the fuss about ? Start with the reenstatement of dla and pay compensation for the abuse the blind have suffered under this screwt eyed right wing government. Reply September 21, 2019 Dom Perignon out means out not half in Reply September 21, 2019 Pinco Palino So "hardball" means "do you hate Catholics" – "yeah, we hate Catholics too". Like Isis saying "so…do you hate Christians, Jews, Shia muslims, Zoroastrians, Jedi warriors…." Lovely to think our British democracy has reached these edifying levels. Reply September 21, 2019 Samuel Woolford If May can't pull this one off how the hell is she going to negotiate with the EU? Reply September 21, 2019 Answers in Reality What a disgusting lot they are Reply September 21, 2019 PAGE no one likes a gloater Jezza Reply September 21, 2019 Illy Boulder Is it wrong to steal back the money the rich stole from the poor Reply September 21, 2019 Kingsuk Paul Why is the british parliament so congested? It is more appropriate for india than britain,where people are crazy about personal space. Reply September 21, 2019 Angela Owens The DUP cannot join conservatives and seek to rule in Northern Ireland as it is a conflict of interest. Reply September 21, 2019 Gar Sm The DUP are "bringing stability to the UK government" ……!! Reply September 21, 2019 JVS Laura Keusenberg is a disgrace to journalism Reply September 21, 2019 x3nine There's something 'uncanny valley' about Theresa May. She appears to be human … but you are still not quite sure if she is. Reply September 21, 2019 YochananMat The BBC is wormtongue. Reply September 21, 2019 Taran Rai FUCK OFF MAY FUCK OFF CONSERVATIVES FUCK OFF DUPOH JEREMY CORBYN Reply September 21, 2019 x3nine Is anyone surprised that a political party linked to right-wing loyalist gangs and paramilitaries is 'playing hardball'? Reply September 21, 2019 bob harris atleast SNP and labour couldn't form a coalition… that would have been a disaster… how could a party that wants independence come together with the rest of Britain, only to separate itself… and Brexit negotiations would have been a disaster.. with jeremy corbyn saying I'll give you 85% of the randsom that the EU want, and do nothing about immigration.. meanwhile nicola sturgeon would want to remain in the EU… why people never look at the bigger picture is beyond me Reply September 21, 2019 puffin51 The DUP is the Orange Order with straightened teeth. As their leader said, they are going to charge pork for supporting the government. Can the government pay out? Maybe – but if they do anything – anything at all – that is seen to benefit Protestants more than Catholics, it'll be on for young and old again. And maybe even if they don't. Reply September 21, 2019 Phil Dobson John Major was so bad a prime minister ("squeezing inflation out of the economy" by making working people lose their houses to inflation causing high-interest rates) that poser & religious nut Tony Blair won a landslide & threw trillions away on Islamic crusades leading to present Islamic State "Troubles" Reply September 21, 2019 Long Forgotten you know, it's funny when it happens to another country. Sorry England, the United States needed a laugh. Reply September 21, 2019 Scott Leeper A question, what happens if the Queen is unable to make the speech? Reply September 21, 2019 Scottish Independence DUP terrorist scum backing a Tory government to drag us out the EU against our will? And you wonder why the Independence support is rising again, and the botched hypocritical Scottish Labour campaign begins to lose support with Ruth's campaign of ignoring policy and relying on Brexit and the constitution will see the end of her support very soon. Well, I guess we'll be seeing you lot later on, hopefully you can get Jeremy into power after we've gone. I may be a separatist to rejoin he EU, but I certainly don't want to see England and Wales go down in flames at the hands of the vile Tories – #JC4PM Reply September 21, 2019 Dheeraj Kattula Should not the default UK policy be that of unionism?
