Also, it comes as no surprise to me that our recent member has been escorted from the premises. He was either smoking ridiculous amounts of crack or, much more likely in my opinion, he was a troll account for an existing member.

May is just doing it as a marriage of convenience. Corbyn is a true believer.

Still terrible, of course, but never let it be said that I allowed a challenge to pass me by

Pathetic answer. May has just ripped apart the Northern Irish peace process in one fell swoop and you still fixate on something Corbyn said 30 years ago.?
If and When NI explodes again it wont be confined to Belfast. Do you believe those weapons stashes, including Semtex, RPG's, heavy machine guns, Barret 50 cals etc etc couldn't somehow find their way into the hands of Islamist terror groups in the UK. Politics is a dirty game, Mixing Terror with politics is down right suicidal. I hope the Queen hits May a punch in the fanny when she vsists today. The Woman needs her #ing head examined.

You seriously have no idea on how this could turn out.? 3 terrorist incidents in the UK in the past month and we now find out the Government has jumped into bed with a political party heavily linked with Northern Irish paramilitary terrorist groups. Are we #ing serious here.?

Theresa May has no mandate to be Prime Minister now. She's doing deals with terrorists just to stay in power. She will ruin this country. Hung Parliament was worst result for us.

As an aside, I'm surprised grainofsand has been absent the last day or two. He normally posts here all day long.

Some doubt that the DUP has terrorist links. But there's no dispute that the DUP is supported by a whole multitude of loyalist groups such as the UDA, UVF etc. And it's beyond any doubt that some members of those organisations are convicted terrorists, some were terrorists but just never brought to justice. Others raised money to buy weapons and are as much up to their knees in f****n blood as the rest of them. The DUP position might officially be for cooperation between communities, no return to the Troubles etc, but they conveniently ignore, tolerate and therefore encourage quite a lot of dubious activities.

Bad enough as that is, you have to consider the DUP's record in government. Prior to this election I was aware of the scandal of the Renewable Heat Initiative, a scheme overseen by DUP leader Arlene Foster. The scheme was set up to encourage NI businesses to use renewable energy sources, all very laudable. But so incompetently has it been administered, so slack was Foster's oversight as minister, that the NI taxpayer is now on the hook for nearly 500 million pounds over the next 20 years, with NI businesses heating empty (and often abandoned) buildings for pure profit from the public purse.

Indeed, allegations have been made that Foster knew full well that the scheme was fundamentally flawed, but that she actively intervened to prevent the scheme's closure. Foster's refusal to be held to account for that scandal, with the DUP's abuse of the cross community parliamentary procedures, is what has brought Stormont to it's knees.

Links to terrorists, incompetence in government, backwards social conservatism (against gay marriage, abortion ... even advocating creationism instead of evolution) ... is this the kind of party Theresa May and the Conservative Party should be entering an alliance with ?

Seems a completely backwards step.

No one won.

Conservative DUP share of vote 43.3%. Labour Lib Dem SNP share of vote 50.4%. JC's mandate is bigger.

I think this election needs putting into perspective here.

Teresa May and her the Tory party got more votes and more seats than Jeremy Corbyn (Labour). FACT

Even though Jeremy Corbyn promised...

- Raising minimum wage to over £10 per hour (currently £4.05 per hour)
- The triple-lock on pensions (guaranteeing a pension rise of min 2.5% per year)
- No university fee's for students (currently up to £9250 per year)
- No increase in income tax for 95% of people

These are just some of his massive give-aways! While Teresa May was threatening to take our homes away

I know. I wish it did. Proportional representation in devolved governments. Outdated first past post for UK government. Now we have dementia tax and ban gay marriage.

As someone who has to actually pay people, I feel obliged to point out that the UK minimum wage is actually £7.50. If it went to £10 then I'd be paying less people.

you are already making up the shortfall through benefits etc via taxation.

Paying living wages will benefit us all in the end but I get it thst simply legislating it from a certain day ain't gonna go so well.

Corbyn did it because he believes that dialogue leads to peace.

May is doing it because she'll do anything to hang on to power, including jeopardising the fragile peace.

Not disagreeing with that assessment at all.

And that justifies paying people so little?

If it's that simple then perhaps we should introduce a maximum wage so you wouldn't have to pay fewer people.

No it isn't that's for people aged over 25 only!

And Corbyn said that he make pay the same across all ages.

Except most of my work is for the government. At the same time they are telling me to pay more for the same work, they have massively cut back on what they are paying me to do that work. You might not see it yet but there's a mass exodus building for legally-aided work.

Especially since the pension system kicked in, I've been planning to walk away from it all and get back to being a one-man band. Small business employment is increasingly becoming a giant pain the arse and more cost/hassle than it's worth unless you simply can't survive without employees.

It's wrong to discriminate by age. Should be paid for the job and experience. Corbyn is right.
