DUP Saves Brexit! [video]

 The Democratic Unionist Party has saved Brexit! That’s how Tory hard-line Brexiter Jacob Rees-Mogg sees it.

The socially conservative, predominantly working-class party has blocked Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan to agree to a sham ‘divorce’ settlement which would cost UK taxpayers a fortune but in fact leave Britain half-in and half-out – in reality not Brexit at all.

As part of that disastrous ‘deal’, May would have left Northern Ireland within the EU’s new border.

“As we made clear in the House [of Commons] a few moments ago, the Democratic Unionist Party has consistently made clear that Northern Ireland must leave the EU on the same terms as the rest of the United Kingdom,”  the DUP’s Nigel Dodds told press following a parliamentary debate.

 “Integrity of the United Kingdom comes first,” the MP for Belfast North added, asserting that there would be no border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the country in the Irish Sea.

Mr. Dodds then rebuked the Republic for its “aggressive stance”, noting the country was “flexing its muscles” after the European Commission handed Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar an effective veto over any Brexit deal at the weekend — a decision which Mr. Dodds said the EU “may want to reconsider”.

“The DUP does stand strong for the Union, and we also issue a warning today to the Dublin government that by continuing its aggressive stance they are in danger of delivering for themselves the very outcomes that they say they want to avoid.

“Now more than ever it is clear that we took the correct view throughout the United Kingdom to vote to leave the European Union.”

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a prominent Brexiteer and grassroots favourite to become the next leader of the Conservative Party, tweeted that Brexit had been “saved thanks to the DUP”, and later stood up in the House to express his “gratitude” to the patriotic party for having “helped Her Majesty’s government stick to its own policy in these negotiations”.

He added that Britain must maintain her Brexit “red lines” in discussions with the EU.
