I am announcing today that in the interests of defence of the union with Britain and because of the look warm support of the union from "unionist" parties I have now joined the Conservative party. As the former chair of Bangor DUP and as a former staff research assistant to Dr Paisley and in view also of the way he was treated by the DUP I have now started a new relationship as a member of the Conservative party. I strongly believe this will strengthen the union. Unionist parties such as the DUP and the UUP should take the Conservative whip in the House of Commons.
