When appointed as Secretary of State the UUP considered Owen Paterson a top bloke:
"Owen's sterling commitment to Northern Ireland has been amply demonstrated during his time as shadow secretary of state," he said."And, in stark contrast to his Labour predecessor, Owen will have no ambiguity in stating his support for the Union. We can be certain that he will be a strong, positive voice for Northern Ireland at the cabinet table."
It doesn't seem to be the view today.
