The budget is just a sop before PM pushes through a sort of backstop

I agree with your morning view in Tuesday’s paper (‘Budget generosity to Northern Ireland might be bid to soften backstop deal,’ October 30).

This extra funding for the province is just a sop from Theresa May and her inner team to push through some sort of backstop.

It will be the 11th hour before the DUP are told regardless of their viewpoint.
