Lord Laird to advise UUP on communications

Some coverage in the Sunday papers, and the BBC, of Reg Empey’s speech to the UUP conference yesterday – full text here [Thanks to Thomas at About EU]. But, while the reports tend to focus on the same points noted here previously, they’ve missed one appointment, in particular. As Reg Empey put it “Mr President, I can also report today that an advisory group on Party Communications has been formed under the chairmanship of Lord Laird.”.. Yes, that’s the same Lord Laird, formerly PR supremo of the Ulster-Scots Agency.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
