Now that the dust has settled on the on the impact of the spending review on Northern Ireland, is it not time that we developed a more mature attitude in politics? Surely we all have to play our part and take our share of the ‘hit’.
In the midst of a world recession we should be grateful to the Secretary of State, Owen Paterson, for what he achieved for Northern Ireland in general, and the Presbyterian Mutual Society in particular.
We should not worry about the habitual whingers who would not recognise a ‘gift horse’ if they saw one.
It is time that we got back to good management in government which Toney Blair ruined it by opening No. 10 to all comers.
Let’s bear the pain and get on with it.
