Leaving DUP out of talks a huge blunder

When will the Conservative Party (of which I am a member) realise that Mrs May is totally out of her depth in the Brexit negotiations?

Her latest gaffe (aside from calling an unnecessary election and agreeing to discuss the EU's preconditions before trade talks had even begun) was to leave out of the Irish border discussion 'loop' her most important ally: the DUP.

This is the worst gaffe by a politician that I can ever recall, bearing in mind what is at stake for the UK.

So, cheers, Arlene Foster, and congratulations for standing up for Northern Ireland.
