The DUP’s price for supporting May’s Brexit deal: seat at trade talks – Sunday Telegraph

Nigel Dodds has proven to be just as controversial as Karen Bradley. As can be seen by the letter on the right. Where he is lobbying for no more Catholic homes to be built in North Belfast

LONDON (Reuters) – The Northern Irish party which props up Prime Minister Theresa May’s minority government is demanding a seat at post-Brexit trade talks as its price for supporting her twice-defeated divorce deal, The Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported.

The Democratic Unionist Party wants a guarantee that Northern Ireland will be treated no differently from the rest of the United Kingdom and a seat at trade talks, the newspaper said.

“We are determined that Brexit should happen in accordance with the referendum result but the only way it can happen which is acceptable to us is if the United Kingdom is treated as one,” DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds told The Sunday Telegraph.

“The government is now focused on this key issue but political statements or pledges are not enough.”
