The British property tycoon, who is a former donor to the Tory Party, said the Conservatives can no longer be relied on to keep the Union safe, and that it falls to the DUP to confront them over the issue.

Mr Habib made the comments to the News Letter following the latest rally by pro-referendum group Irelands Future, held in the Ulster Hall on Wednesday night.
