By all means let there be a Commons division on the billion pound investment in jobs and services in Northern Ireland. We should warmly welcome that investment, while calling for Scotland, Wales, and each of the nine English regions to receive the same per capita, with at least £100 million for each parliamentary constituency, since that was the price of each of the DUP's Commons votes.
Anything less would make a mockery of the very names of the Conservative and Unionist Party, and of the Democratic Unionist Party. The DUP has never disputed the existence of the so-called Magic Money Tree. At least in practice, that existence is now fully acknowledged by the Conservative Party as well. Let the abundant fruits of that Tree be harvested throughout the United Kingdom.
