Conservatives begin talks with DUP over alliance

Parmenio Sano | 11 Giugno, 2017, 07:01

The petition accuses the DUP of being a "dangerous group" and highlights its stance on LGBT issues, the death penalty and abortion.

The DUP is known for its anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage views as well as its links to terrorism. She led the party to an astonishing result in Scotland, winning an extra 12 seats in Thursday's election. The group's leader Arlene Foster was elected past year on a promise to work to prevent abortion rights from being extended to Northern Ireland.

The Conservatives have formed a minority government at Westminster which will function with the promised support of the DUP's ten MPs.

The London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign, which campaigns for legal abortion in Ireland and Northern Ireland, warned the PM about the agreement with the DUP.

The Prime Minister has promised the Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson that any deal between their party and the Democratic Unionist Party will not damage gay rights in the UK.


They are opposed to LGBTI equality at large and have been holding up same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland, although there is a majority for it.

"It's an issue very close to my heart and one that I wanted categoric assurances from the prime minister on, and I received (them)".

The DUP has repeatedly used a controversial Stormont voting mechanism - the petition of concern - to prevent the legalisation of same-sex marriage, despite a majority of MLAs supporting the move at the last vote.

Speaking to the BBC, Davidson said: "I was fairly straightforward with her [Theresa May] and I told her that there were a number of things that count to me more than the party".

Northern Ireland is the only part of the British Isles where same-sex marriage remains outlawed.
