Reader’s Comment of the Day: Owen Paterson is another MP to grasp our security threat


In response to Kathy Gyngell: Britain languishes in a security wilderness. Can Rory Stewart be our Churchill?, Barry Sheridan wrote:

Rory Stewart is not the only MP who displays some grip on the issues that face Britain. Owen Paterson is another.  You will recall he was sacked as a Minister by Mr Cameron, a loss given that Mr Paterson was recognised as having fully mastered his brief, something of a rarity in modern politics. Others who stand out include John Redwood and my own MP Steve Brine, so the picture is not quite as dismal as portrayed. However, given that the Britain of today mirrors the Britain of the 1930s, a nation with its head in the sand, I can see the comparison.
