Theresa May makes deal with terror-linked DUP in desperate bid to cling to power.
THERESA MAY desperately clung to power yesterday by resorting to a coalition of terror with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
After months of smearing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as a so-called “terrorist sympathiser” for engaging in peace talks with the IRA, she leapt into bed with the notorious loyalist party to avoid the humiliation of seeing her opportunist snap election force her out of No 10.
Ten DUP MPs will allow a government that looks set to be — in the words she previously used against other parties — a “weak and unstable coalition of chaos.”
The loyalists have a history of dubious members, policies, connections and links to violent paramilitary activity in Northern Ireland.
Former leader Peter Robinson helped establish loyalist paramilitary group Ulster Resistance in 1986, and stood down in 2015 after disgracing himself with a defence of Belfast pastor James McConnell, who called Islam “satanic” and a “doctrine spawned in hell.”
DUP minister Jim Wells meanwhile was forced to resign in 2015 after being recorded on camera saying that “a child is far more likely to be abused and neglected” if their parents are gay.
