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.
