I am hearing on good authority that the DUP has suspended all Westminster selections until further notice. This is as a result of ‘pact’ talks.
Consider the implications of what’s going on here. Reg has produced a statement supporting the Tories. The DUP are apparently acting in support of unity negotiations by suspending selections.
Are the DUP preparing to accept a joint selection process? Or will they simply withdraw in a few key constituencies?
For my money though, the Tory pact must be considered finished. The credibility of the pact cannot survive unity talks with the DUP.
And if the DUP are indeed suspending selections, then there are hard questions for Party Leaders. Not all the statements being issued by the Parties right now can be correct. What is going on?
