Owen Patterson- a different kind of Northern Ireland secretary

\"\"

"It is quite extraordinary when you think how that city is coming together united behind the City of Culture coming along soon, that this tiny number of unrepresented people can do such a crazily reckless thing,” Paterson said.

He has put together another package of $300 million to tackle the continuing dissident threat.

Paterson knows there is much work to be done before Northern Ireland can truly be a normal society, but his ability to take on some sacred cows just might move that process along.
