Speaking of what the Conservatives have been saying under David Cameron's leadership, he said: "There have been a lot of positive messages for people who are unionists in the real sense and not just narrow-minded bigots..
"I think this is a wonderful opportunity for unionists here to fully participate in the Union."
"I don't know anyone in the DUP who I would regard as being a socialist," he said.
"In fact, the vast majority of them are far to the right of even the Conservative Party.
"I'm getting a bit sick listening to people talking about left and right politics when they don't know what they are talking about."
