George Galloway: 'A Tory deal with the DUP will only lead to trouble and tarnished reputations'

George Galloway spoke about the Tory DUP deal

George Galloway has said a Tory deal with the DUP can only lead to trouble and it will tarnish the reputation of the Democratic Unionists.

The Conservatives are currently trying to strike a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party in order to gain a Parliamentary majority following the general election, which delivered a hung Parliament.

The talkRADIO presenter said: "In all seriousness, the DUP risks tarnishing its reputation by getting into bed with Theresa May. It’s that bad.

"The idea that Britain can be ruled by the Democratic Unionist Party is utterly risible. It could only lead to trouble, trouble here in Britain and trouble in the North of Ireland.

"The first act by Tory government against the interests of working people in Britain will be blamed on the DUP, it will be blamed on unionism, it will be blamed on what they call Northern Ireland, and British people will say what are we even doing in Northern Ireland what is Northern Ireland even doing here, not just in Parliament but at the very heart of the state.

"The majority of people who vote for the DUP are working class men and women. They themselves will be victims of Tory policies made possible only by the Parliamentary support of the DUP."
