Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
or "the smart money"...
... the DUP are starting to get real? You reckon?

Sterling has rallied to its highest levels against the euro and dollar since late-July this morning, having gained more than 1% in reaction to the news that the DUP may be softening their stance on the Irish backstop.
However, the pound remains vulnerable, with politics set to continue dominating and the Brexit landscape shifting as quickly as ever.

But I'd check the odds at Paddy Power for a more reliable indication.

Not so sure about the DUP, but my saying "the Penny has Dropped" is more a reference to Newton Emerson as a mainstream unionist commentator. The DUP still have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 21st. century and their will be much "wailing and gnashing of teeth" before that happens...
