DUP helped railroad through city boundaries

It’s rich of the DUP’s Nigel Dodds to get worked up about three parliamentary seats in Belfast when it’s his party that helped railroad through the new city boundaries which have causedthere to be only a case for three seats in Belfast.

Is it a case of ‘he doth protest too much’ or does he finally have buyer’s remorse now that his own job is on the line, not merely the interests of the people of Belfast.

This sudden interest in widening the borders of the city comes across to me as being nothing more than craven self-preservation.

Perhaps if he spent more time worrying about the people of Belfast and less about courting the Conservatives at champagne receptions, he might have a chance of winning one of the new Belfast seats!
