Help

The Ulster Unionist leader Mike Nesbitt has said his former deputy was wrong to say the party was walking blindly into unionist unity with the DUP.

Mr Nesbitt sacked John McCallister over the comments that he made in a speech.

Mr McCallister expressed the fear that the Ulster Unionists were "sleep walking into unionist unity".

Mr Nesbitt said the timing of the comment was "regrettable" and that "unionist unity is not on my agenda."
