The failure to restore the power-sharing administration in Belfast is a direct consequence of the Tory-DUP deal to prop up Theresa May’s government. It is undermining the entire talks process and shattering any remaining pretence of British government impartiality.
Through her pact with the DUP, Theresa May has prioritised her own electoral survival over the interests of the people in the north of Ireland, who have suffered under years of Tory austerity and are now looking into the Brexit abyss.
Theresa May is rationally self interested in the career and life of Theresa May. The life of hose in Northern Ireland is interesting but a second order problem. According, of course, to Theresa May that is.
In other news, Nancy MacLean is still full of shit.
