Conservatives and Ulster Unionists – past, present and future

Yesterday David Shiels provided an interesting historical analysis of the UUP’s relationship with the Conservative Party in the Belfast Telegraph. Tonight, no link as yet, David Cameron ahead of his speech at party conference on Saturday, outlines in the paper his commitment to Northern Ireland as an integral region of the UK.

If, as a party, we form the next Government of the United Kingdom, local Conservative and Unionist MPs will take their rightful places on the Government benches and, potentially, in Government itself.

I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
