Who Might Come To Hand

The DUP has been in coalition with Sinn Féin for at least 12 years, and arguably for 21. Arlene Foster attended the funeral of Martin McGuinness. People who are expressing their incredulity that the DUP might do a deal with Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell need to get out more.

Likewise those who wonder how the DUP could possibly, in effect, block Brexit. If the Big Man had been dead slightly longer in 2016, then the DUP would have campaigned "reluctantly" for Remain. Its only true aim is that there be a homeland for that minority of Ulster Protestants which looks to the Ulster Revival of 1859, a homeland on as much of Ireland as can be held for the purpose. 

It cares not who holds its homeland, be that the British Army, or the Ulster Resistance that has never so much as declared a ceasefire, or the UDA and the UVF that it is "consulting" right now even though mere membership of either of them is an imprisonable offence, or anyone else who might come to hand at any given time.

And it cares not who pays for its homeland, be that Britain, or be that, too, anyone else who might come to hand at any given time. For example, the European Union, with which it therefore pays to keep in. After all, hours from now, abortion and same-sex marriage will become the law in Northern Ireland, so what has Britain ever done for the Spirit of 1859? The EU could not do any worse.

Such is the party that holds the balance of power in our Parliament. Another hung Parliament is coming, however and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it. A new party is now in the process of registration. After nearly 30 years of suggestion, speculation, and even a sort of preparation, I will stand for Parliament here at North West Durham. The crowdfunding page is here, and buy the book here. Please email Very many thanks.
