Details of the agreement between Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative government and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) of Northern Ireland were revealed on Monday.
May and the DUP leader Arlene Foster shook hands on the deal which sees 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.
Despite the government's protests to the contrary, it's being interpreted by much of the press that Theresa May has desperately bribed a Unionist party in Northern Ireland with investment, annoying Nationalists who claim it violates the Good Friday Agreement.
All to cling to power.
No10 spokesman says DUP deal "intended to address a specific set of unique challenges". Cue laughter in press gallery.
