Theresa May’s government is on course to have to defend its Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) deal in court. Because Ciaran McClean from Northern Ireland is launching a legal challenge against it on the grounds that the deal threatens the Good Friday Agreement. And he argues it’s in breach of the Bribery Act.
Condemnation

May’s decision to prop up her weakened no-majority government with a £1.5bn deal with the DUP – including £1bn of new money – has received heavy criticism. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon called it a “grubby, shameless” deal. While Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones said it was a “straight bung”. Labour’s Dennis Skinner has also called the arrangement a “protection racket”.

A crowdfunded bid at the high court in London to challenge the government’s controversial parliamentary deal with the Democratic Unionist party has failed.

Two judges rejected an application made on Thursday by Ciaran McClean, an unsuccessful Westminster candidate for the Green party in Northern Ireland in the general election, to bring a judicial review of the legality of the £1bn deal.
