What the DUP say you’ll get if you vote for them. Note the original colour scheme. The DUP graphics team really pushed the boat out on creativity for this Party Electoral Broadcast
They are promising to swing left or right as the UK voters’ fancy takes them.
They have set out a 5 page plan of what they want.
Page 1 – the title seems little more than wishful thinking, a real impossible!
The DUP 5 page, double-column wishlist states they want
*to innovate UK to establish a NI presence and NI to be prominently incorporated into UK branding
Comment – no idea what this means
* constitutional stability for NI
*Westminster to respect the principle of devolution
*an agreed minimum level of NI representation in the House of Commons
*Flights to London
Comment: All Done – from the 1920 Govt of Ireland Act onwards to the development of commercial airlines.
Maybe the DUP really are living in 1690?
Or do they expect the referendum during the next Parliament?
Do they really think Westminster will always want them, even if the people of Ireland vote for re-unification?

The DUP are convinced they will be Kingmakers in the event of a hung parliament
They had 8 MPs out of over 600 in the last Parliament. They’re hoping to gain another 1 or 2. They could lose 1 or 2.
They haven’t even factored in SNP’s role in the balance of power
SNP candidates are predicted to sweep the boards in Scotland and gain 30-50 MPs and maybe even 55/59.
If Lord Ashcroft’s poll is right, then the end of the UK is on the cards.
Back to the questions
Do the DUP want Westminster to say they will always want them?
Please don’t be sucked into the DUP delusion and folly.
We all already know that in the past couple of years it has featured policies like:
Creationsim in the Giant’s Causeway Geological Exhibition, Fleg Riots, Twadell Campers, Protests about a play and Sunday football matches, the Equality Commission’s “persecution” of a Co Antrim bakery which refused to make a cake with a slogan in support of gay marriage and an attempt to introduce a “conscience clause” into equality law in Northern Ireland.
You can read about most of these in other posts on this blog
Finally, if the DUP get their dearest wish of becoming Kingmakers in a new Conservative administration or even at a pinch Labour Government, what happens to the UK “impartial brokerage ” of the NI peace setttlement and process?
Don’t blame me if you vote DUP and get more of the same as well as the humiliation of that document circulating through the Halls of Westminster .
