It’s important to know all the standard bad stuff about the DUP, like the connections to loyalist terror groups, the homophobia, the belief that dancing is sinful and so on, but also let’s not forget that they were behind the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, where the NI government offered to pay people for using renewable energy sources like burning wood instead, but they set it up so the amount of money you could claim was more than the cost of the fuel, and there was no limit to the amount you could claim, so people were just rinsing thousands of pounds at a time for just setting up boilers to heat empty sheds all year round. Like, I still don’t understand the exact mixture of incompetence and corruption that went into that, but it’s fucking amazing.
