UUP & Multiculturalism: for or against?

The UUP has an interesting and expansive line on Northern Ireland as a multicultural society. There’s some evidence that it is popular with the younger elements in the party. But what worries the blogger over at About EU is the party’s call to restrict the number of places given to overseas students in UK universities. Along with Sinn Fein’s Davy Hyland’s remarks, it begs the question as to how far any of the local parties have got in thinking through emergent (non constitutional) issues.
