As blogged here at Brassneck, there may be an opportunity arising for the DUP to play a key role in the UK constitutional debate that’s unfolding in Britain. Even with an eight per cent lead over Labour, the Tories will find it difficult to get sufficiently far ahead on the ground to be able to go it alone without some form of external support. Even John Major’s 21 seat majority couldn’t save him from the unwelcome attention of the his ‘bastards’ in cabinet.
