No she's not. The DUP is a legitimate political party with 290,000 votes. Using your "logic" Sinn Fein should not be allowed into the Dail.

They should be allowed in Parliament but a deal with the UK government is crazy.

I imagine May can be stopped by legal means - which Court should hear it ?

The formal arrangement. I don't think it's unlawful. I do think it's very unwise.

I very, very much doubt that a court would interfere in Parliamentary affairs of this sort..

So is the Good Friday Agreement not legally enforceable ?

I would be astonished if the courts felt able to interfere in Parliamentary arrangements. It would be unprecedented.

Doesn't mean the Agreement is in all respects "legally unenforceae."

I'd say the politics matter more than the formalities. Wd u object to Sinn FΓ©in joining Irish govt.?

No fan of Sinn Fein but it's a false equivalence. Irish government is not the "sovereign govt with jurisdiction there."

But I agree with your general point that it's the politics that matter most.

I still don't see how u can read it as a ban (with any legal effect) on NI parties in the UK govt.

I don't think it has any enforceable legal effect, but I still think it's a breach, and will be seen as such, & is thus very unwise.
