The Democratic Unionist party is planning to vote with Labour in favour of raising NHS pay and against higher tuition fees during opposition day debates, the Guardian has learned.

The party’s MPs will back Labour on a “fair pay rise” for NHS workers and oppose the government’s increase in tuition fees – the first time the DUP will have broken with the Conservatives since their deal after the election.

A DUP source confirmed that the party’s position was to vote on Wednesday for two opposition day motions tabled by Labour. The votes are believed to be non-binding and therefore fall outside the DUP’s confidence and supply agreementwith Theresa May’s party.

The Conservatives will refuse to back either of the motions, which were tabled by Labour partly with the intention of highlighting divisions between May and the DUP.

To form a government, which they did....

The Democratic Unionist Party, who secured more than £1bn in funding for Northern Ireland in return for supporting Theresa May’s government in a “confidence and supply” arrangement that compels it to prevent the government from falling but not to support it on every measure, are not closely aligned with the Conservatives on spending plans.

Under the “confidence and supply” deal, the DUP agreed to back the Conservatives only on finance bills, Brexit legislation and protecting “national security”.

It said the party’s support on other issues would be decided on a “case-by-case basis” – making the agreement much weaker than a formal coalition.

DUP MP Ian Paisley Junior told the Guardian before the vote: “We made clear to her majesty’s government on issues like this we reserve the right to vote on the basis of our own manifesto. This doesn’t threaten the deal at all.”

I think he's just tryna get sacked tbh.

he'll do something else dumb, May will have enough, he'll make some half hearted attempt to either try for leadership or just go to the back bench where he'll become an ultrabrexiteer saying everything and doing nothing before he becomes a consultant for a hedge fund
