Ulster Unionist Party (a political party in Northern Ireland that wants it to remain part of the United Kingdom) Culture The Ulster Unionist Party was formed in 1905 and led from 1995 to 2005 by David Trimble.

In 2003 it had six Members of Parliament in the House of Commons but three of them resigned in protest at their leader's support of the Good Friday Agreement.
