I note from social media that the secretary of state has announced the appointment of people to the Castlereagh Foundation from Castlereagh’s Ancestral home, Mount Stewart.

Of course the irony is that the Conservative Party have demonstrated to have torn up the very Act of Union Castlereagh drew up.
