Because of Theresa May proving herself evasive & weak during the GE2017 campaign again & again, because she has now definitely proven herself John Major in a skirt, the Tories are short of majority in parliament & are now in talks with the Democrat Unionist Party to keep them in power, err who’s now making friends with peeps who have links with terrorists, oh it was fucking hilarious hearing Michael Fallon on the BBC’s Marr Show this morning attempting (& failing) to avoid the issue that the DUP have had links with Loyalist terrorists in Northern Ireland after all it was Fallon during the general election campaign who more than any other Tory was constantly trying to smear Jeremy Corbyn as having supported the IRA for having had talks with Sinn Fein back in the 1980s.
It’s well established the DUP have had links with Loyalist terrorists such as the UDA & the UVF & the Red Hand Commandos, but even if there aren’t any established links with terrorist paramilitary groups & the DUP, the fact remains that DUP are a bunch of homophobic, transphobic, misogynistic, racist, climate change denying, pro capital punishment, sectarian bigots who make the likes of UKIP & the British National Party look mildly liberal
The DUP are serious illiberal bigots & I say….NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NO SURRENDER TO THE DUP!
As you might tell I’m not keen on there being any kind of coalition deal or any kind of arrangement having the DUP prop up the Tories in government with their regressive neanderthal social-conservatism possibly being used as leverage & also because it puts the Good Friday Agreement in jeopardy & a return of the troubles in Northern Ireland,
No way can the Tories mediate impartially with any issues there might be with the power sharing setup at the Stormont Parliament if they’re relying upon support of the DUP to keep them in government.
Of course some DUP bigoted supporter is no doubt going to accuse me of being biased because I’m a lifelong Celtic supporting political lefty, yes true I’m a lifelong supporter of Celtic F.C but the reason I happen to support Celtic has nothing to do with religion, I mean for starters my family are Jewish not Catholic, however my reasons in utterly despising the DUP does have something to do with religion as in I myself am an atheist & I just look at organise religion with utter fucking distain for all the prejudice & strife it causes.
The DUP were founded by a religious extremist & though Iain Paisley might be dead (& oh I celebrated the day he died), the DUP are still essentially a bunch of intolerant religious bigots propagating prejudice & strife towards LGBTQ peeps & whoever else upon the word of a non-existent sky daddy & now they’ve a hold over the Tory government at Westminster.
My utter fucking distain isn’t just because of any atheistic objections, it’s actually rather more personal, it’s because I’m a lesbian trans woman & I don’t want LGBTQ peeps to lose the hard fought rights we’ve won over the past few decades because the Tories will do anything to stay in government.
