Arlene Foster is the leader of the Democratic Unionist Party, which is currently propping up the zombie Tory government in a ‘confidence and supply’ agreement.
In 2016, Ms Foster told the Irish Times of her admiration for Margaret Thatcher and her enthusiasm for the Royal Family:
I can’t help but have a great admiration for a formidable woman who thrived in a man’s world. I am also a keen royalist
That enthusiasm may not extend to the younger members of the royal family, however, as shown when Mrs Foster tweeted her congratulations on the royal engagement.
To the wrong prince:
Mrs Foster also managed to misspell the first name of Harry’s fiancée, Meghan Markle. The tweet was subsequently deleted.
Of course, there are many who are distinctly unenthused by the news of a new royal wedding, which has already been used by the Tories to bury the huge bad news for recipients of state support, who will face a further freeze in that support for at least another year – and by the ‘MSM’ to fill hours and hours of TV ‘news’ instead of addressing the many, many crises faced by the zombie government and the hardships faced by many of our people.
If Mrs Foster’s eye for detail is lacking, perhaps she could do those suffering citizens a favour and walk through the ‘wrong’ lobby in Commons votes until the Tory government collapses, relieving us of the Tories’ incompetence and malevolence.
The DUP was contacted for comment but did not respond.
