I agree; I'm a member. But the analysis of May's flaws (from a Tory) is accurate and unflinching

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.

That's a bit like saying Tory, LibDem and Labour MPs from Scottish seats shouldn't count.

Sinn Fein has always refused to take its seats in UK Parliament.

"We took the oath to break the oath" - like DeValera before them they'll do what is convenient. They used to boycott councils and stormont.

Note to the Conservatives - if you don't know the legality of a decision, it really is worth consulting an expert (aka a lawyer).

HMQ did not ask Theresa May to form a government. She certainly won’t ask Boris.

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..
