Floyd is a journalist from the U.S. now in Oxford. He just wrote a piece for Counterpunch: “False Dawn or New Hope: Right-Wing Pact Imperils UK Paradigm Shift,” which states: “This morning finds us in what might be an even worse situation, as a wounded — and woefully incompetent — Theresa May limps to the palace to form a government that will be utterly at the mercy of the right-wing sectarian cranks of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party.” Floyd is author of Empire Burlesque and has written for numerous outlets.

See from Fintan O’Toole of the Irish Times, from last month: “What connects Brexit, the DUP, dark money and a Saudi prince?
