I've already proved those expenses are historically within the normal UK-NI expenditures...
Sorry....NOT a bribe...just the cost of doing business and politics as usual.

No, as I've explained, more normal in the States, less so here. Hence the row here (not just by TMA but by tens of millions of people of all political persuasions). NI already got far more subsidies than it's size and condition warranted, this is on top of that. A bribe, representing 40% of the NHS deficit.
Wrong by any measure.

Seems like the DUP spent all that time negotiating for nothing if that 1.5 billion was just par for the course...

Quite.
If you have a Prime Minister over a barrel and demand £1.5 bn to let her go it's NOT normal politics.
And when it's done by one of the most socially backward parties in the Western world it's really not on.

Well...you should have no problem proving that those amounts of money {1.5 Billion...the figure that's being bandied here..} are not within historical norms between the UK and Northern Ireland...
Please don't be a doosh and use Russian media links to try and prove your case...
Thanks.
Also...regarding GFA...
Peace can't be bought.

Yeah....
But {to quote a dooshy remark further back in que..} the "Sainted" Jeremy Corbyn is Not the prime minister,
Theresa May is.
That's how the Referendum vote went down.

Again, you fail to understand a transatlantic difference. US Presidents, even sexist bombasts, are owed a degree of ex officio respect, UK PMs, less so. It's the way it works. So people are free to respect Corbyn far more than May if they wish, irrespective of their offices. Vive la difference.

I'm sure if you say so, then you must be speaking for the entire UK...
But i doubt that very much.
Anyhoo...i rather believe that Madam May will persevere even without your support.
And Nigel...your very likely to catch cold with your nose in the air like that all the time...at your age, you could catch your death !

Oh but it can. Bucket loads of American and British money was poured in for that purpose. It's still rocky though and this new tranche could rock the balance.
