DUP MPs don’t do Westminster on Mondays…

There is much more to this Speaker controversy than meets the eye. The first tactic of the Opposition was to spend 45 minutes complaining about the lack of time the Government had given them to debate the motion… And there’s the question of running Trojan Horses inside Whitehall, less than 18 months before a new Tory administration may take up where its ‘moles’ left off… And then there’s the question of the missing Unionist MPs, who when Parliamentary privileges came under fire in the supreme bodies of the UK were moonlighting, doing the day job, simply not there.
