    Dimwit Argiepoop, the £billion will be spent on projects in Northern Ireland to benefit the people there! It doesn't go in corrupt politicians pockets like it does in Latrine America. Ever heard of the Pork Barrel? Thought not... As for keeping the Tories in power Britons don't want to end up deep in the shit like you lot did after years of Peronism

    “£billion will be spent on projects in Northern Ireland to benefit the people there!”

    I hope the DUP aren't in charge of spending it, they don't seem to be very good with money. Just look at the Renewable Heat Incentive scandal.

    As for keeping the Tories in power, if we'd wanted them to have a majority we'd have voted for them. How many people voted for the DUP?
