DUP have some explaining to do

Published 14/05/2015

I note that Jeffrey Donaldson MP (on the Sunday Politics show) is trying to promote the DUP as vital in saving the Conservative Party.

I fail to see where this scenario would become reality, when there are 60 Eurosceptic MPs, 10 Lib Dems, 232 Labour MPs and 56 SNP. How does eight or 10 become relevant?

When challenged to confirm if the First Minister was actually meeting the Prime Minister, the story was changed to he is in London at the same time.

The whole election promise of "holding the balance of power" is well and truly rubbished and it is now up to the DUP to explain to their electorate what they can deliver at Westminster.
