The DUP are still trying to maintain the fiction that a separate post breaksit customs deal for the Irish border would endanger the Union.

In reality, the only possibility of any danger to the Union because of breaksit, would be likely too come from a hard border, and the DUP are making such a border more likely.

"DUP threat over Brexit backstop deal"

"The Democratic Unionist Party's deputy leader has threatened to paralyse the government's domestic agenda if Northern Ireland's place in the Union is jeopardised by a Brexit deal."

Quote,...

But, Nigel Dodds said his party would stop short of triggering a general election.

He was speaking ahead of a key cabinet meeting in London.

The DUP prop up Mrs May's government and the prime minister relies on their support in key votes as she does not have a majority in the House of Commons.

Mr Dodds told BBC's Newsnight that his party was ready to withdraw support for the government on key domestic legislation if there is any move to "break up or fracture the union".

However, Mr Dodds' warning was described as "profoundly undemocratic" by a Conservative Party MP.

Anna Soubry, who is pro-EU, also told BBC's Stephen Nolan Show that the DUP were a "blooming nightmare".

Mr Dodds spoke out after he sought assurances from the prime minister at Westminster that Northern Ireland will not be left in the EU single market when the rest of the UK leaves as part of any backstop deal.

The backstop is a safety net that will apply to the border if a wider deal or technological solution cannot keep it as frictionless as it is currently.

The UK rejected the EU's proposed backstop, which would see Northern Ireland staying in the customs union and large parts of the single market, and instead proposed a backstop which would keep the whole of the UK in the EU customs union for a limited period. etcetera,...

My note,... Later in the article, Anna Soubry says this,...
Quote,...

However, Conservative MP Anna Soubry said Mr Dodds' comments were "shocking".

She accused the DUP of "holding the rest of this country to ransom" and said it was "breathtakingly irresponsible".

The former minister added that while she found DUP MPs at Westminster "perfectly nice people" as individuals, they were a "blooming nightmare" when put together.

"They are, at the moment, not working in the interest of the UK nor in the interest of the majority of people in Northern Ireland," she said.

Hi

Looking for members of Bell family who lived in Balaklava street, off Falls road, Belfast. I know Kathleen Bell lived there until 1960 at least. I'm sure her husband was James Bell. And his father/mother were George Bell and Annie Bell....First listed in Balaklava street at 1911. All seem to live in the same house...No 25 Balaklava Street.

Thanks

Gerard Bell

"Union to erect signs on Belfast's Cave Hill in move to tackle suicide"

"A west Belfast group plans to erect 12 permanent signs today aimed at discouraging people from taking their own lives in Cave Hill Country Park - despite the fact that it has not sought permission from Belfast City Council."

"Unite the Union's Shankill community branch says the organisation decided to act without informing the local authority as the number of suicides across the city has reached "epidemic" levels and it feared "red tape" would delay or prevent the signs' installation."     etcetera,...
