I actually disagree with most on here.Not sure I could agree with that. He failed in 2 previous Departments due to his inability to act strategically DOE over Review of Public Administration the issue being that he wanted to go against the Boundary Commissioner over which parts of Castlereagh should go to Lisburn and in DCAL over the Maze Long Kesh issue. Promoted above his ability if you ask me
Poots is a smart man and has a very difficult portfolio. He is not afraid to tackle issues head on, and there is no easy answer to continued budget reduction. Plus I think he is much less bigotted than his cohorts.
