High Court THROWS OUT campaigners bid to block Mrs May’s power deal with DUP

GREEN PARTY campaigners have been dealt a damaging blow after they LOST a formal challenge to Theresa May’s deal with the DUP in the High Court today.

The legal challenge was thrown out against the Prime Minister’s controversial deal which saw her offer the DUP a whopping £1.5bn to stay in power after her election disaster.

Campaigner, Ciaran McClean, was seeking to bring a judicial review of the deal and questioned its legality. The Green Party politician said that the Prime Minister had breached the terms of the Good Friday Agreement and the Bribery Act.

McClean accused the UK government of “buying votes” to hold on to power using the confidence and supply arrangement, which is a “corrupt bargain”.

Two High Court judges rejected the application, saying that neither of the two grounds relied upon in the application were “properly arguable in a court of law”.
