    On Top of the billion we may get sometime, the torys had to pay for Arlene's RAF flight back from London .That cost approx £20,000.

    I don't see what difference this money would make to dup voting intentions. They're not going to allow JC to become pm under any circumstances. He did have a surprisingly good general election result, but remember he's still 55 seats behind. Hardly biting at the tories' heels.

    All this election pact talk is taking it out of me.

    I need a break. A chance to escape it all.

    I was thinking of taking a holiday. Maybe to Sri Lanka. Can someone ask Ian Paisley Jr how much I can expect to pay.

    Exactly! The Tories didn't even need to offer the DUP any money. They could have just said, "fine, don't vote with us. Then JC will be PM and you don't want that any more than we do."

    Strange - Ian was telling us weeks ago that the cheque had already been cashed. I always thought "Your cheque is in the post" was the standard lie.

    Brexit, mostly, in my case. I suspect there's going to be increasingly pointless carry on, until we're told it's not actually going to happen. Sorry, leave voters, just too many snags.

    Have I missed something? What have the UDA been up to?
