UWOs will likely be deployed in a partisan manner reflecting post-98 political policing

Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI The introduction of Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWO) has been widely welcomed across the political spectrum. The draconian investigative tool has been subjected to little scrutiny; its invasive nature obscured by a ‘the ends justify the means’ approach to tackling crime.

The Herald’s ridiculous article attacking Rangers and Linfield should not go unchallenged

The Herald’s ridiculous article attacking Rangers and Linfield should not go unchallenged

@JamieBrysonCPNI Editor@UnionistVoice.com The Herald piece begins with the assertion the 2020/21 Linfield away kit resembles a UVF 1912 flag.

Charity Commission promote their legal advisor- only weeks after scathing High Court judgment

Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI From 2013-2019 Sarah Finnegan, a qualified Barrister, was legal advisor to the Charity Commission.

“A Dark Day for Northern Ireland”- Cllr Stephen Cooper analyses the Belfast Agreement 22 years on

By Stephen Cooper  @S_J_Cooper Twenty-two years on Twenty two years ago last week, the Belfast Agreement was foisted upon a weary and desperate electorate.
