Irish Ayes?

There are those who will vote against any Brexit, no matter what: the SNP, the Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru, Caroline Lucas, probably Sylvia Hermon, and certainly a tiny number of Conservative MPs.

And there are those who will vote to bring down this Government, no matter what: almost certainly everyone who was elected as a Labour MP, with only John Woodcock as a possible exception.

But then there is the DUP. Which prospect does it hate more? Giving the keys to 10 and 11 Downing Street to Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell, who will die eventually? Or drawing a permanent border all the way down the Irish Sea?

Brexit now hangs on the answer to that question.
