The DUP are behaving as if they think May is a loser

What’s really holding the DUP back? Theresa May has already offered them the keys and thrown in the garage. Are they dreaming the impossible dream?   Or more likely, waiting to see who and what will come out as winners next week – if anybody?   They are at least hedging their bets on the future of May’s deal;  or waiting to see if a new prime minister will match or improve her offer. Their one big fear is that a new government of whatever stripe  is not bound by their present offer.  But they’ll have to take punt on it before the end of the month.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
