How cartoonists reacted to the Tories' billion pound DUP deal


The Conservative government's deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) of Northern Ireland was revealed on Monday.

The deal saw the DUP vow to support the Conservatives in key parliamentary votes, in exchange for a "triple lock" on the state pension, the withdrawal of some Conservative manifesto pledges, and an extra £1 billion of funding for Northern Ireland, on top of the extra £500 million they usually receive.

Obviously, cartoonists have seen it as ample material for a sketch or two:
