In what is their centenary year, the Ulster Unionist Party has been left reeling from the 2005 Westminster general election results. The historic party of the union has but one remaining seat in the House of Commons, and as was predicted, Northern Ireland's electorate has abandoned the centre-ground parties in favour of the extremes.

So how did the UUP become so out of touch with mainstream Unionist opinion? What could the party have done to hold its vote in the 2005 general election?
