DUP'S AGREEMENT WITH TERESA MAY WILL DERAIL THE PEACE PROCESS


The aftermath of Conservative leader Teresa May's foolhardy decision to call an election back-fired spectacularly with the loss of nearly 30 seats.


Instead of resigning this Thatcheresque PM has turned to the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland with its 10 seats for help in forming a new government in the UK.

Desperation politics many will call it and that is true as relying on Arlene Foster's DUP will demand the strengthening of the Union between Britain and Northern Ireland in return for sharing power with May in the UK.

Sinn Fein will rant and rave at this grave development, but without using their 7 elected MP's at Westminster, there is very little that can be done without their input, apart from bleating at the Government in Dail Eireann.

The Power-Sharing Agreement in Stormont is effectively at an end as the DUP can now tell Teresa May and the Conservatives that they do not wish to remain in Government with Sinn Fein.

So a period of inertia will remain in Ulster without the calming influence of the deceased Martin McGuinness to keep the Provo's quiet. Worrying times ahead.
