The DUP Deal That Dare Not Speak Theresa's Name
The £1bn DUP deal is done and signed not by Theresa May, but by the Government chief whip Gavin Williamson.
May knows that her time as PM is not finite. When she goes, the deal can continue without being renegotiated.
To pre-plan one's own demise is sensible, wrt funerals and wills. However, in politics such pre planning becomes a self fulfilling prophecy!
