John Downing: DUP deal has saved May's skin for now - at cost of much unease
In March 1982, Charlie Haughey met a hitherto unknown Independent TD, Tony Gregory, looking for a vote to prop up his Fianna Fáil minority government.
"You know what I want. What do you want?" was how Haughey greeted Gregory.
What emerged was the "Gregory deal" for inner-city Dublin, which periodically, right up to this day, is decried as "political bribery" and "anti-democratic".
