This morning, several hundred protesters gathered in Parliament Square to voice their anger at Theresa May's government and her alliance with the Democratic Unionist Party.People carrying placards reading anti-DUP and pro-Jeremy Corbyn stood peacefully in Westminster and listened to speaches from Stand Up To Racisim and the Stop The War Coalition.May needs the support of the DUP's 10 MPs to be able to govern after losing her parliamentary majority in Thursday's general election.The details of the agreement are not yet known but Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston said it 'simply won't work' if it includes any change to abortion laws or 'dilution' of gay rights.Those principles won't be compromised.'Heidi Allen, MP for South Cambridgeshire, said she was 'deeply unhappy' with the idea of a formal coalition hours before the original announcement was made.
The DUP has already demanded £1billion for the NHS and another £1billion on infrastructure in the province.
Westminster is supposed to act as an honest broker between the parties under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.
Sinn Fein was already suspicious of Tory neutrality because of the party's traditional closeness to the DUP and any form of coalition will chill relations further.
The party, led by Arlene Foster, wants the plans to be approved, in return for them agreeing to a confidence and supply deal with the minority Tory government.
Any support from either party would push the PM into a corner, forcing her to either agree to their plans or lose the DUP's support.
