How did David Trimble, the bete noire of Irish nationalism and bien pensant opinion transform himself into a peacemaker? How did this unfashionable, petit bourgeois Orangeman come to win a standing ovation at the Labour Party conference? How, indeed, did this taciturn academic with few real intimates succeed in becoming the leader of the Ulster Unionists? And how did he carry them with him, against the odds, to make an historic compromise with Irish nationalism?
