never mind about the peace agreement, don't count the cost of the deal, as long as the DUP will prop up the Tories to get through controversial legislation.......what do you say?

Party before country, how much higher can you aspire to, Mrs May?

It seems that the tory party never ceases to amaze as to how low it will stoop to remain in power. May stood up in front of a Question Time audience telling a nurse who had not had a pay rise in real terms since 2009, 'there is no magic money tree'. Obviously they must have planted one in the back garden of Downing Street to find the reported £1 billion pounds they have paid to bribe the DUP. So whilst the NHS continues to crumble, class sizes expand, the sick and disabled being systematically attacked, the list goes on, the tories manage to find a billion pounds to cling to power. Truly sickening.

It had better be a prolific magic money tree then because Nick Macpherson, former Permanent Secretary at the Treasury has tweeted that that billion (give or take another half billion or so, the figure I have read varies) is merely the down payment for TWO years and that the DUP would be back to demand more and more.

Lucky May, wouldn't mind a cutting from her money tree to see whether it will grow here in the Dordogne.....ha, ha!

Me too mint, so long as the money tree with grow in Deux Sevres, a bit cooler than where you are, so perhaps I will need to apply some sort of protection for it over the winter.[:)]

Just to remind ourselves what our lying Theresa said in response to the nurse that questioned why she hadn't had a pay rise for 8 years:

"The Tories are nothing more than a racket for their wealthy backers, a

crude political instrument to defend the interests of Britain’s

shameless vested interests. They will happily locate a magic money tree

if it’s their own political survival that’s at risk. But what is good

for the partisan interests of the Conservative party is not good for the

nation.

The Tories’ Ulster spending spree should embolden all of us who

always believed austerity was an ideologically driven con. On Saturday,

thousands will march with the People’s Assembly

to demand the end of the failed Tory experiment. The Tories have

legitimised their arguments. Austerity is over for Northern Ireland,

it’s over for the Queen, and now it must end for everybody else too."

I really think the tories and May in particular are going to regret using 'the magic money tree' soundbite, the article above posted by Norman blows their whole austerity claim out of the water. The soundbite is now showing up all over the media with usually similar comment being made about it, as in The Guardian article.

As I stated before the election soundbites was all that May had apart from personal abuse of Jeremy Corbyn. The old 'strong and stable' soundbite was totally shot to bits with the four day U-turn on the dementia tax[:D]. I am also guessing that the slur they tried to pin on Corbyn with his alleged support of the IRA will now be quietly dropped (just as grammar schools were today). The fact that they have now jumped into bed with terrorist sympathizers will have finished off that soundbite, unless they are going to start peddling good terrorist/bad terrorist soundbites.

I am personally glad that the tories have jumped into bed with the DUP as it will hasten their demise, the British public is not going to wear the one and a half billion pounds being bunged to the DUP, whilst they are being told the only way is austerity for the rest of the UK.

Roll on the next election, although not too soon I want to see the tories burn the economy a while longer with their reckless Brexit soundbite, 'no deal is better than a bad deal', just buy your popcorn and sit back and watch[:D]

Yes, "sound and stable" has given way to "the magic money tree".  But, Grecian, you do need to keep up.  I believe the latest is "fair and serious" though the Europeans thought it "fair made us laugh"; except EU people living in the UK of course; THEY certainly have nothing to laugh about[:'(]

I thought this article in the Independent summed it all up.

I can't make it clickable but it is worth a read...

I can't believe people still vote tories. As for her, she is one nasty piece of work. She will destroy the UK unless she is stopped.
