So the PM has bought the votes required to railroad unpopular policies. Can she outlast trump?

They've also torpedoed the Good Friday Agreement.

There are (so I'm told) lawyers on the case, to try and stop the bung going through.

It 's no different from the Labour Party diverting local authority funding to their northern urban strongholds at the expense of the Tory voting rural Shires.

All Governments (Tory/Labour) try to favour their voting constituency when in power..., the Tories financially favour the 'purple rinse brigade'...,
That's one reason why people vote for a particular Party...

This is a cash-for-votes bribe to prop up the Government.
Subtle difference.

Not in the last election they didn't.

This is just a more desperate version because they didn't get round to bribing the electorate before and during the election.
