The DUP Continue to Withhold Government Support - What Will This Mean for Theresa May?by 👨‍💻 Simon Baxendale

DUP's Dodds: Party cannot support Brexit deal in its current form

British Prime Minister Theresa May has had an embattled few years with regard to Brexit, the UK’s forthcoming removal from the European Union. In recent days, however, her continued efforts to try and come to a deal with the EU which will appeal to as many people as possible have caused friction within Parliament – not only with her own party, but also with those who are supposed to be propping the government up. The Democratic Unionist Party, according to The Guardian, have continued to withdraw support for the governing Conservative Party as a result of ongoing concerns they have with May’s latest Brexit proposals.

The DUP are just one factor in what has continued to be a very public fracas over the state of a deal for Brexit that May is working to figure out for the best. The DUP, representing Northern Ireland, are deeply concerned that the current deal laid out by the Prime Minister greatly affects the rights of the nation’s citizens – and as a result, they have seemingly refused to support the government for two days in a row at the time of writing. The DUP’s support in Parliament is essential for the government to succeed in the majority – as the Prime Minister had made a deal to secure 10 DUP MPs last year in an effort to seal a Conservative majority coalition in Parliament at the 2017 General Election. Had Theresa May not sought the DUP’s support, a ‘Hung Parliament’ situation would have persisted.

In any case, the DUP’s removal of support from the government on a handful of issues recently adds to the ongoing pressure the Prime Minister is facing as she heads to Brussels in an attempt to thrash out a deal before November ends. Nigel Dodds MP, representing the DUP, confirms that the party are displeased with the way that negotiations are proceeding. “It is increasingly clear this deal does not have support necessary to pass the meaningful vote in Parliament,” he warned.

The DUP’s apparent removal of support even on minor issues could lead May and her government down the route of a no-confidence vote. While there are ongoing rumblings to suggest that plans to unseat May within her own party are still vibrating, if the Prime Minister fails to offer what DUP MPs are looking for as her ‘domestic agenda’, things could be set to get even more dramatic on home soil. Will Brexit happen at all?
