I don’t agree. It seems the Conservatives will have to offer them something and word is it’ll be a vote on reducing female reproductive rights, which is appalling in this day and age even if the vote has little chance of passing. The openly gay Scottish Conservative leader has apparently had to seek reassurances that they’ll be no regression in the area of LGBQT rights.
I think people need to continue to hype up this pact with the DUP as much as possible. Whether it’s necessary for the Tories to do this or not, we should demand some basic level of principles from our government and in this day and age it is wholly unacceptable to get into bed with such a bunch of bigoted and regressive nut jobs. We need to keep pointing this out and be merciless in not letting then off the hook on this one.
Even leaving aside the ethics of the situation, pragmatically people shouldn’t let up on this DUP thing, the Tories are reeling and the Labour Party, the media and the public need to be relentless in holding them to account now more than ever.
I know in your post you perhaps meant overhyping what the DUP will actually be able to achieve, but imo even if they achieve or influence nothing this still isn’t being overblown.
