Paisley will go to Manchester…

From Gary Kent in Manchester:

The speculation can now end. The DUP leader Ian Paisley is definitely attending the Labour Party conference for the first time. It is 10 years since the then UUP leader David Trimble attended his first Labour Party conference as part of his charm offensive to win support within the Labour Party which was obviously on course to win the election in 1997. Paisley will address a private breakfast meeting later in the week.
