I was challenged by a few people in Hillsborough today on where is the leadership in Unionism today. People feel let down by the current leadership of Unionism and are being turned off by the archaic Unionism we have been led by for the past decade. I want to see a new Unionism, fresh for Northern Ireland’s second century of existence. A Unionism which everyone can be proud to be a part of, whether you are from a background which is Protestant, Roman Catholic, or neither. One which will deliver for this country, and not simply rehash the arguments of yesteryear.
This March we will have the chance to have our say on the future direction of Northern Ireland and I am asking people to put their trust in me and the Ulster Unionist Party.
