The reason the DUP hates the deal is because the Irish Government helped negotiate it, writes Fergus Finlay
The British establishment (and some of their so-called allies in Northern Ireland, not to mention their incompetent opposition) has managed, over the past few months, to achieve something I wouldn’t have thought possible. They’ve made US president Donald Trump look coherent, even, occasionally, responsible.
Some of them have spent days working themselves into a lather about an enormous document few of them have even opened, let alone read. They seem to believe their government has deliberately, and consciously, sold out everything that Britons hold dear. They’ve done everything short of accusing their own prime minister, Theresa May, of behaving like Neville Chamberlain and committing some terrible act of treason (Chamberlain was British prime minister at the outbreak of the Second World War).
