Colum Eastwood re-shuffled his team of spokespersons today. This to reflect the retirement of Pat Ramsey and Joe Byrne and the co-option of Gerard Diver and Daniel McCrossan. With other MLAs Dominic Bradley, Alban Magennis and John Dallat also set to stand down, it is important that the Party have a new “team” in place before the Assembly elections. It will raise the profiles of lesser known people. These are the people you are likely to see on TV over the next few months
