Tory-UUP love-in about to spawn first employed wonk…

COULD the rapport between the UUP and Tories be growing? Even before they reach final agreement, the parties are advertising for a Northern Ireland Campaign Director, who will report to their Joint Committee, “focusing primarily on the European Election Campaign, the selection of candidates for the General Election, preparing for and executing a General Election campaign for Northern Ireland”. With £35k (from which source of funding, I wonder!) for the successful candidate, it looks like the UUP/Tory relationship is moving beyond first base and getting down to some awkward fumbling.
