The greater threat

David Vance moves his gaze from the UKUP towards the DUP. In his personal experiences he has been impressed by key individuals within it but feels Paisley’s power is too great, the DUP is selfish in its actions to other Unionists and crucially is not truly an Unionist party but a Ulster nationalist one. This alleged lack of commitment to the Union means the DUP, coupled with the lack of credible Unionist political opposition, makes it the greater threat to the Union.
