The Conservatives have reached an agreement with the DUP in order to form the next government. If you live in Northern Ireland we’d like to hear your views
Theresa May has reached an agreement with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist party that will enable her to form a government. The prime minister is expected to see the Queen at about 12.30pm on Friday to confirm that a deal is in place.
Senior DUP figures claim that they wanted to form a coalition to stop any chance of Jeremy Corbyn from becoming prime minister. A DUP source said: “We want there to be a government. We have worked well with May. The alternative is intolerable. For as long as Corbyn leads Labour, we will ensure there’s a Tory PM.”
