Done deal! The high price of Government? Power at any cost is not true power. Many Tory back benchers are unhappy as shown by their support of the Labour bill for free abortions for Northern Irish women. She is only in power at the moment as the Tories cannot afford to replace her with a new PM as this person would be unelected and have no mandate to negotiate with the EU. They dare not risk a general election and are aware that the confidence and supply agreement with the DUP leaves them in a very shaky position. Several of her parliamentary back benchers have called for her to back down on the cap for public sector workers. To cap this people are realizing that collective power works and are marching to end austerity. Labour are proving to be a strong opposition and as a minority government the Tories haven't the numbers to push through their austerity agenda. She may well have wasted even more of our money on this shabby deal.
Are you glad we English have the DUP in our government? Only one good thing about this, under a 'confidence and supply' agreement the DUP could bring the government down on a whim.
Should the Conservative Party's plan to form a Government with the Democratic Unionist Party be blocked? I agree Den and people need to understand that under a confidence and supply agreement the DUP could bring down the government at any time.
What will happen now between Scotland and England ? Probably nothing will happen. It is very clear that the Tories are not welcome in scotland but on the news this morning the SNP candidate was slyly saying that they would probably work with the tories - just what the country needs, NOT!! Tories are crooks & criminals! yes, labour has had a lot of problems, as has britain but this is not the governments fault, its a worldwide problem that has affect britain as well as most places worldwide, the poor labour government has just got the blame for it. Unless you are a millionarie or an english public school pupil/ex pupil you are likely to be stuffed by the tories. Scotland will just have to put up with what the torries want, and that will just make us all change our vote next time. David cameron is a sneaky, underhanded t***t who has said what he wants others to hear all along. If any one had read through each of the parties policies like we did then they would realise that a tory government wont help britain, it will hinder and destroy it.

Is it possible that Jeremy Corbyn could still be prime minister? The government - i.e the Tories and DUP - have 327 seats between them. It would take only 2 by-election losses for them to become a minority government, and those never last long. Also the DUP and the Tories don't see eye to eye on a lot of issues - the DUP absolutely do not want to see a hard border with Ireland (which would essentially mean we continue to see freedom of movement with the EU, as any EU national could simply go to Ireland first and then travel across the border there), which the Tories' hardliners absolutely will not stand for. Alternatively May could be cannibalised by her own party who are pretty furious that their majority was thrown away for her vanity, which would most likely mean another (ANOTHER) general election. Corbyn isn t going anywhere. He did the unthinkable - turned what looked like the biggest Conservative landslide since Thatcher into a limping Tory government and gains for the Labour party, despite nearly universal hate campaigns from the media. The smart money s on another election within a year - all he needs to do is keep doing what he s doing and he could well win it.

No way confidence and supply deal can continue, say FF TDs Several of Micheál Martin’s chief lieutenants in Fianna Fáil have said that extending the confidence and supply deal is “unimaginable” at present, the Irish Examiner can reveal. In a warning to the Government, the future of the deal has been thrown into doubt as Fianna Fáil TDs are furious over a lack of progress on issues like health, housing and education. Speaking to the Irish Examiner, the TDs have ruled out an extension of the deal to facilitate the Fine Gael-led minority government from opposition,

Are the Conservatives preventing Britain from get the best possible Brexit deal from the EU; are they prepared to accept the consequences, if their actions harm the country? Why doesn't Labour distance itself from this historic error?
