DUP in a fantasy land over our place in UK

Belfast Telegraph letters to the Editor

I have been listening to members of the DUP recently and really can't believe my ears. They don't want a separate Brexit deal for Northern Ireland, because they are worried that this will put Northern Ireland's position within the UK in jeopardy.

It's funny how we never hear anybody in the DUP worrying about our position in the UK when it comes to other issues where we are different to Great Britain, such as abortion, same-sex marriage, corporation tax, or even having our own football team.

The DUP continues to live in some sort of fantasy land, where they seriously believe that the English somehow care for Northern Ireland and its people.

But make no mistake: when a deal is struck, it will be what is best for England - not Northern Ireland.

Mark my words, the day will come in the not-too-distant future when members of the DUP get a 'quare gunk', when our economy becomes a total mess following Brexit and the English leave it to us to sort it out.
