The Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) is a unionistWikipedia party in Northern Ireland which was previously the dominant unionist/loyalistWikipedia force in Northern Ireland. Although considered batshit insane hardline conservatism by outside standards, within the context of Northern Irish politics they are considered moderate unionists compared to the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which is now the dominant unionist/loyalist force in Northern Ireland.[1][2] Its former leader, the former hardliner David TrimbleWikipedia, was considered instrumental in securing some support for the Good Friday Agreement among unionists in 1998, and won the Nobel Peace Prize along with John HumeWikipedia for his efforts.[3] The Good Friday Agreement was seen by many as ending the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
