Brexit : Rats jumping overboard !

Following on from the RWNJ Tea Partyish ERG wing of the Conservative Party deciding to vote for PM May's Withdrawal Agreement, the Ulster RWNJ DUP landed a bombshell signalling they are running for the hills. I genuinely guffawed until I could guffaw no more. The consequence of all this is that Brexit is slowly sinking. Remember

- No Deal Brfexit is ruled out.
- May's Deal is ruled out
- 7 other posibilities in the Indicative Vote were all beaten.

You shouldn't need to join the dots as to where this is headed

Brexit: Nigel Dodds 'would rather stay in the EU than risk union'

The DUP deputy leader has said he would "rather stay in the EU and remain rather than risk Northern Ireland's position" in the union.

Nigel Dodds told BBC Newsnight his position showed how strongly he felt about the union.

It comes after Theresa May saw her Brexit deal defeated in the House of Commons by 344 votes to 286.

However Mr Dodds also said the government must not accept the EU's position as "unalterable".
The prime minister said the UK would have to find "an alternative way forward", which was "almost certain" to involve holding European elections.

Mr Dodds said he did not rule out supporting a "soft Brexit" and that the withdrawal agreement in its current form risked leaving "Northern Ireland behind, causing economic and political ruptures between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom".

However, he did maintain the DUP's support for Brexit: "We believe the referendum result should be respected and delivered on."

He reiterated his party's position that it wants Brexit delivered without the Northern Ireland backstop.
