Funny how the Tories are able to shake the magic money tree to persuade the DUP to prop them up in government & now we know it costs £1billion to buy the votes of 10 MPs, this is blatant cash for votes & if that wasn’t outrageous enough remember the votes the Tories are buying are those of far-right bigoted loons!
I doubt I’m the only LGBTQ peep who’s right now seriously scared about the deal having the DUP propping up the Tories in government, though I don’t think this is going to immediately lead to the dark days of Tory homophobia such as Section 28, I can’t discount that happening despite what any Tory MP might say to calm fears that LGBTQ rights won’t be eroded or dismantled, particularly as the DUP are now entangled with the Tories in government it will give more of a platform & Impetus to homophobic social-conservatives within the Tory ranks to speak out such as cabinet ministers Andrea Leadsom & Priti Patel & Tory backbenchers such as Jacob Reese Snob & Misogynist Philip Davies.
Let us remember the voting record of Theresa May hasn’t been enormously positive towards the LGBTQ equality & now with this DUP propping up the Tories it seems to me that social-conservatives are going to have far more courage to preach the rhetoric of homophobia & transphobia which at the very least will result no further progress when it comes to combatting LGBTQ hate & particularly for trans peeps likely nothing good regards allocating resources for trans healthcare, which is why this year’s Pride season is as important as it’s ever been to highlight the potential negative consequences for trans peeps & the wider LGBTQ community which could come from the Tory/DUP deal.
Here’s hoping the DUP’s climate change denying lunacy doesn’t have any major influence on the Tories particularly as the Tories environment record isn’t brilliant as it stands & if we don’t do anything to tackle climate change then it could seriously fuck things up for peeps in the long term, but the immediate issue is for the safety of peeps in Northern Ireland because Theresa May having the DUP propping up her the Tories in government could seriously fuck up the Good Friday Agreement & the relative peace peeps in Northern Ireland have benefited from in recent years, because how can the Tories seriously be impartial mediators regards the power sharing arrangement in the Northern Ireland Assembly at Stormont when they’re relying on one of those parties involved in the power sharing government in Northern Ireland to prop them up in government at Westminster, me thinks Sinn Fein have plenty to be aggrieved about regards the Tories having the DUP propping them up in government but I seriously hope the gun & bomb don’t return to the streets of Northern Ireland as a means of dealing with political division.
Just the fear of bloody political violence returning to the streets of Northern Ireland as a consequence of Theresa May doing a deal with the DUP to prop up her Tory government, I want to scream at that she’s a fucking moron! The likes of John Major have warned her off from doing any deal with the DUP & putting peace in Northern Ireland in jeopardy, but she’s now done the deal & as time passes I doubt I’ll be the only one screaming at Theresa May she’s a fucking moron!
