Ever since Mrs May’s gravely misjudged call for a general election, the Democratic Unionist Party have been the lynch-pin of the Conservative’s minority government.
They’ve been as obdurately tenacious in sticking firmly to their reasonable demands over the Union of Northern Ireland with Great Britain in Brexit negotiations and their infamous ‘backstop’, as has the Prime Minister and her fellow-travelling Remainer Cabinet and her ‘one-and-only’ deal, which originated in her pesonal discussions and agreements with Angela Merkel for the conditions for Britain leaving the EU.
According to a Christian prayer-coordinator speaking at the Wembley Day of Prayer, all members of the DUP are born-again Christians. Had that fact been true for all MPs for England, Scotland and Wales then we’d never be witnessing the scandalous demise of democracy in our nation. We have deliberately sown the seeds of rebellion against God and our Christian heritage and have thus reaped its fruit of utter chaos of deep divisions – plus several instances of our Prime Minister’s personal and our national humiliation!
In view of the prophecy about that situation I blogged this in Fulfilled Prophecy #24:
‘Note that the Lord is bringing about His word on this issue through the only Christian- based political party in the UK: the Democratic Unionist Party, Northern Ireland (DUP)…
‘After this year’s humiliating snap election Theresa May is reliant upon them to support the government’s very slim Parliamentary majority.
‘This week the DUP’s leader Arlene Foster dealt Mrs May a serious blow as a result of our PM’s lack of proper consultation over the highly sensitive and controversial issue of how trade between Ulster and the Irish Republic is to be conducted after Brexit.
‘Brexiteers’ in Cabinet accused the PM of trying to ‘bounce’ the Cabinet into agreeing a ‘regulatory alignment’ between Ulster and Eire (which is in the EU), thus requiring Ulster to be treated differently to the rest of UK because of its land border with the Republic
‘Upon hearing the Irish PM claim such an alignment would be part of the deal Mrs May was to agree with the EU’s President of the European Commission in Brussels, Arlene Foster more or less said, “No way!”. It came as a “big shock” to the DUP” (BBC News) and so Mrs May’s discussions collapsed.’
May didn’t have the ability to negotiate and was too proud to take tips from Trump, so she wouldn’t learn anything, and Foster and DUP are absolutely right to stick to their guns in not backing her deeply dubious decisions over how to leave the EU.
Three weeks ago Arlene Foster was awarded ‘Female Politician of the Year’ at a prestigious ceremony in London at the Asian Voice and Political and Public Awards.
So if we had a party with the guts and gumption of the DUP, Britain would be better off, in my humble opinion.
This afternoon’s news is as expected, there’s no change in their stance:
