Audioboo / Secretary of State Theresa Villiers at DUP conference

Theresa Villiers has been given a warm welcome, and spoke warmly about the DUP.

Similar to the FG minister, this is interesting.

Not so long ago the UUP would have been where the Tories would have spoken. Not now.

The DUP and the Tories - with the Tories getting more Eurosceptic - are they basically now on the same page? DUP MPs could come in handy at times in close votes.

She made a long part of her speech about how she would never be neutral on the Union etc, both for Scotland and the six counties with lots of DUP cheering.

I thought the fact of her mention of corpo tax by the way suggested that this was going to happen.
