“Why Don’t You Listen?” – DUP Relationship With Conservatives At Breaking Point
A breakdown in communication is a tell-tale sign that a relationship is on the rocks. So, when the DUP’s Nigel Dodds stood up in Parliament today to ask why the government does not listen it told us alot about the state of the relationship between the DUP and the Conservatives.
Mr Dodds was speaking during the debate on an urgent question regarding the full publication of the legal advice the government received on the draft Withdrawal Agreement. MP’s are pushing to see the full advice before the vote on the agreement on December 11th however, Downing Street will only commit to the publication of a summary.
Solicitor General Robert Buckland has had many offers to come to the Commons Mr Dodds said: “So why doesn’t the Solicitor General listen and the Government start listening? This has been the problem all along. What is it they have to hide?”
Sir Keir Starmar joined in the attack, claiming the government is displaying “contempt” for Parliament. Buckland however insists that it is merely a matter of finding the “right time” to brief MPs.
