Ciaran McClean of the Green Party says the Tory-DUP deal breaches the Good Friday Agreement and the Bribery Act, but the government says the confidence and supply agreement is within the law.
McClean has launched a crowd funding campaign to fund the legal proceedings. He is being represented by David Greene of London-based Edwin Coe solicitors, who represented one of the claimants in the successful Brexit challenge in the Supreme Court.
David Greene said:
“It’s not a question of foisting views and the important point is this is about the rule of law,” he said.
“This is about a citizen’s entitlement to go in front of a court and say that doesn’t look right and to be able to challenge it in some meaningful way.”
