In a special souvenir programme to mark the event, Orangemen were advised to “reject and repudiate the superstitions of Rome” because rejecting God's offer of salvation would mean “tragically when you die your soul is lost in hell forever.”

Tory-DUP £1bn payment needs parliament's approval after Gina Miller challenge
Release of cash promised by Theresa May in deal to prop up her minority government will have ‘appropriate parliamentary authorisation’
Hard to see why the DUP should be entitled to vote on this issue.

If the DUP bump off Gina Miller even a few sane Tories ought to start thinking "hang on, who exactly is it we're allying ourselves too here". Of course the headbangers would love it.

I think its worrying that we are now in a position where such things are starting to be discussed seriously. Bumping off inconvenient political opponents is not something we are used to in Britain, I associate it with dictators.

Where the hell is the country heading?

If the DUP do get shafted it'll be the Tories who get the blame. I'm pretty sure the government must have known the deal would need parliamentary approval. Not so sure the DUP would have been aware of it. Gina Miller has rectified that.

They'll get the money though, if only because the Tories who aren't keen on the deal will be shit scared to vote against it.

They're all rather too busy selling drugs and shooting each other in a series of feuds that's gone on since time immemorial. The Wombles were never much for assassinations of high profile targets in any case. Random viciousness against civilians was/is their thing.

The UDA. So called because of their membership's fondness for Army-surplus fur lined snood parkas, giving them a resemblance to said furry creatures, m'lud. Probably the loyalist group that had the least distant relationship with the DUP in past days, mainly due to how many years they went unproscribed.

Far from the silliest paramilitary nickname.

Funny enough, today the Red Hand Commando, a UVF sub-group, applied to be removed from the proscribed organisations list, and legalised. The RHC in it's own right were very, very bad boys indeed*, but they also served as a flag of convenience for the UVF and others, resulting in their bizarre legality throughout the troubles.

It's notable that most parties here have issued statements along the lines of "go away and fuck yersel", with the exception of the PUP ( political wing of the UVF) who see it as a positive step. The DUP have said absolutely nothing on the subject.

* Indeed, outside the Security Forces augmented Glenanne Gang and the like, they were by some distance much more secure and effective operators than their loyalist peers. Carried out some fairly audacious shit back in the day, once bombing a different Catholic pub every night for a fortnight, for example.
