With the announcement of the formation of a new unionist party in April. What do posters think of the prospects for this breakaway faction of the UUP?
Personally, I always preferred the DUP types, being more honest on their, to say the least, dislike of Catholics.
You know where you stand with them. Whereas, the UUP types are like the type of person who is friendly towards you but speaks behind your back.
With most progressive Protestants voting for Alliance and to a lesser extent the SDLP, is their room on the political spectrum for a new unionist party in a declining unionist electorate?
Will McCrea and McCallister be able to attract other independent UUP exiles like Syliva Hermon and David McClarty?
