Letter to the editor

I’ve known John since we were in the Young Unionists together.

He had a lifetime commitment to unionism and Ulster Scots culture which he demonstrated in his own colourful and flamboyant way.

I want to express my condolences to Carol, Alison, David and the wider Laird family.

Lord Empey, Ulster Unionist Party chairman
