Sorry to start another Brexit thread but I think this deserves one of its own.

The DUP is hard line Leave.

The DUP is fervently anti anything that threatens the Union.

The DUP, despite insisting that Northern Ireland remains anti-same sex marriage and abortion, demands that NI is treated exactly the same way as the rest of the UK.

The DUP will not support any sort of border on the island of Ireland nor one in the Irish Sea.

Can anybody tell me how any of this is coherent and exactly how they would like Brexit to operate?

This is not about Leave v Remain. Those issues I roughly understand on both sides. I simply have no handle on what kind of Brexit would be acceptable to the DUP despite them being all in favour of it.

Do they expect us to send 50,000 troops in to man a border? Have we even got 50,000 troops to do it if we wanted to?

I'm totally baffled on this one. Please help.

(But can we keep this explicitly to the DUP/Ireland rather the stuff widely discussed elsewhere on this board?)

They still believe that Dinosaurs are a figment of scientific opinion's imagination.

You expect coherent?

This at the end of the day is...Protestant v Catholic.

Possibly only two solutions.

1.....The Republic becomes part the UK.

or

2.....Ulster joins the Republic and then stays in the EU.

Which would start the troubles all over again the quickest.

Oliver Cromwell should never have got involved.

Well, there's absolutely zero chance of option one happening. The EU was the best thing that ever happened to Ireland in their continuing historical struggle with the english.

At this point, I've decided to have popcorn instead of muesli for breakfast.

Oh thank you Mr Watt....I don't see your solution penned yet....just your rubbishing of others views....but that's your ATD prerogative just shining through.

Sounds more like fishing to me. As for the first bit in bold, no you don't you have never had any intention of even listening to the arguments of the other side and you remain as ignorant as you were two years ago.
Second bit in bold. Shorely that's nothing new for you is it?

Nobody knows then, I assume?

Because if they do they haven't attempted to answer the question.

I did know that the DUP believes dinosaurs to be a hoax, I did know that the politics of Ulster are largest sectarian in nature (presumably a Pope once acknowledged that dinosaurs may once have existed), pretty sure the DUP is against a united Ireland, not sure of their policy on a united Ireland being a part of the UK but can't even begin to imagine that there is much traction for it in the RoI - and if there was we just swap proddie crackpots for papey ones so there is no net gain.

Still nowhere near to knowing the DUP preferred version of Brexit though.

Do they even have one?

The DUP conference starts tomorrow so I guess they'll be outlining their Brexit terms then as up until now they just keep shouting "This is a shit deal that better not go ahead" and don't offer any explanation as to what they actually want. Then of course they'll come up with a Brexit plan which is ridiculous and couldn't possibly happen and the tub thumping and bullshit will just carry on along with the rest of them.

What could be interesting is that Phillip Hammond and Boris Johnson are due to speak at the DUP conference so we might get an understanding of how much cosying up to the DUP has cost us I for one will be interested to see what utter gibberish the twat Bojo decides to spout over on the Irish mainland as up until now his big policy for Ireland under Brexit is that future technology will sort it all out.

Johnson is a feckin lunatic who tries to bluff his way through life making quotes in Latin in order to fool the Plebs.
