The DUP’s fury with a Theresa May Brexit plan that would see Northern Ireland remain in the Single Market for goods whilst the rest of the UK left has seen one of their MPs make clear that “everything is on the table”.
Speaking to Sky News, DUP MP Jim Shannon said: “In the next two weeks we’ll be deciding what we’re going to do.”
As for what could happen next? “Everything is on the table. The implications of that are clear. We’re not afraid of elections.”
He urged Downing Street to carefully consider their next move, saying that the “government need to have a long, hard look at our position”.
"We're not afraid of elections…everything is on the table" @JimShannonMP told me on @skynews re voting down the Budget. Of course an election wouldn't happen automatically but could put the PM in a virtually impossible position politically https://t.co/OomuWPVrnN

May’s Chequers plan could see the government brought down and a General Election. She should switch to Canada+ – if not, the Tories may soon be looking for a new Leader.
