A BETTER DEAL: Foster Commits The DUP To Carrying On The Fight For Brexit

Little doubt exists in my mind that the Democratic Unionist Party have been the most consistent champions of the Brexit cause within Parliament. Tory Brexiteers have blown hither and tither depending on which way the wind has blown and frequently, especially in the totally botched coup attempt against Treason May when their equivocation and dither cost them victory and now, if Jacob Rees-Mogg is anything to go by, they are moving back towards supporting the Prime Minister as some kind of critical friend. UKIP, of course, have no Parliamentary representation so cannot reasonably be counted in this contest.

It thus falls to the DUP and their leader Arlene Foster to carry the Parliamentary flag for Brexiteers. Thankfully, today Arlene has recommitted the DUP to the battle against the Withdrawal Agreement. She said that the Northern Irish Party is committed to maintaining the “economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom”. This means the continuing the fight against the backstop and the Withdrawal Agreement.

She continued: “We will work resolutely in the coming weeks to get a better deal and ensure the backstop is defeated.”

Quite where this battle will take Foster and the DUP is yet to be determined.
