Someone said :
What the dup had their meltdown over was that the text restricted the agreement to ni and things related to the good Friday agreement ...
This is zero threat to the UK.
But it does burn the Trojan horse that the the UK go are trying to sneak into the phase 2 which is : access to the single market doesn't allow access by services - this is UK Achilles heel as they are economically dependant.
So what the UK will propose to solve the dup synthetic ( paid by leave campaign in brexit " difficulties" will be to apply the article to the whole of the UK because their aim is to try to use this as a basis of equivalence for services .
The Irish gov and EU will insist it only relates o areas of the good Friday agreement and the dup will squeal like stuck pigs to get it removed , it's not the dup wagging the Tory dog , it's the Tory donors who bought the dup who are running this show.
This would be the type of Tory that's running the show then..
