DUP having moral cake and eating it?

Jonathan Isaby isn’t happy and Nigel Dodds condemning MPs for not voting reform their expenses (although Brian got the blog ‘scoop’ on that one here) and then not turning up for the vote themselves… If they want to play rough with the bigger boys, the DUP need to take the whole game a bit more seriously, not simply when you’re making a winning play… Another argument for having a separate cadre of MPs who are prepared to commit to the Westminster game, perhaps?
