DUP threatens to topple UK government but says compromise possible


DUBLIN (Reuters) – The Northern Irish party that British Prime Minister Theresa May’s government relies on for support said on Thursday it would consider supporting a vote of no-confidence if May agrees to EU checks on goods entering the region in Brexit talks.

Democratic Unionist Party Brexit spokesman Sammy Wilson told Ireland’s RTE radio that the party’s 10 members of parliament would vote against the UK budget and would consider voting no-confidence in May if the British government breaks the DUP’s red lines in Brexit talks.
