DUP's contempt for UK's voters

The DUP has shown contempt for taxpayers and the UK parliamentary system by voting against plans to redraw constituency boundaries in the Commons.

In Northern Ireland, the DUP supports cutting the number of politicians.

Yet it won't take the same approach UK-wide.

The DUP's decision to vote against fairer boundaries and a cheaper Commons is disappointing. But it isn't surprising.
