The Democratic Unionist Party: Once again, the Tail Wags the Dog

How appropriate that it should be the Democratic Unionist Party which tabled the House of Commons motion commending Prime Minister David Cameron's exercise of the British veto in the recent EU negotiations.

The Democratic Unionist Party is one of Northern Ireland's weird religiously-based parties, a Protestant one and therefore committed to keeping Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom.

If the inhabitants of mainland Britain had a say in these things (they don't) they would want to cut Northern Ireland adrift at least as much as they would want to cut Europe adrift.

Europe adrift? Yes, that's right: Fog in Channel; Continent isolated.
