…no doubt the DUP will relish the thought of further scrutiny of it in the British Parliament as news arrives that:

Parliament will need to approve the release of £1bn in funding for Northern Ireland promised to the Democratic Unionist party by Theresa May to secure its support after the general election, the government has conceded.

Challenged by the campaigner Gina Miller about the legal basis for releasing the funds, which have not yet been made available, the Treasury solicitor, who heads the Government Legal Department, said it “will have appropriate parliamentary authorisation”, adding: “No timetable has been set for the making of such payments.”

Good news – anything that makes the Tory/DUP lash-up more unstable the better.

But isn’t “parliament” just the tories and the DUP in this case? I get that would be unpopular but they could still do it
