No Future for UU’s?

David Vance completes his trilogy of articles on Unionism with an essay on the UUP. He does not see bright things in its future instead:

I honestly do not think it has a future. The DUP has successfully salami-sliced it from the political right, the Alliance Party has moved in to feed on the soft left…It has no charismatic personalities, it has no unique political perspective, and in fact there is absolutely nothing about it that appeals.
