DUP “open to a Tory top-up grant” says Foster

UK Politics

DUP leader Arlene Foster said the number of DUP MPs elected would determine ‘the shape and direction of this country’ as she launched the party manifesto.

Speaking in Belfast she said, ‘This election is about two things; Brexit and filthy lucre’.

The DUP opposes elements of the Brexit deal relating to Northern Ireland.

And Mrs Foster said she believes further changes can be made ‘as long as we get the Tories by their bollocks again’.

Mrs Foster said the DUP would not support a government led by Jeremy Corbyn if the upcoming election resulted in a hung parliament.

But that they would be ‘open to a Tory top-up grant’.

The DUP entered into a confidence-and-supply agreement with the Conservative Party after the 2017 election in exchange for a £1bn cash injection for Northern Ireland.

Asked about the future of that arrangement Foster said, ‘I’m confident we can come to another agreement if Boris wants to supply us with a shed load of cash’.

Arlene Foster famously embarrassed Theresa May publicly during Brexit negotiations in December 2017.

A feat which the DUP leader described as ‘achieving the impossible’. She said ‘Mrs May basically spent her entire premiership embarrassing herself but somehow people remember when I made her look stupid too. Anyone who can do that should not be underestimated’.
