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.

Covid-19 Regulations must be enforced in adherance to the rule of law- we must resist sliding into a police state

Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI Let me preface this article by making clear that I support the necessary regulations put in place as part of our collective effort to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

Draconian restrictions must be in place no longer than necessary- we must never consent to normalising the abnormal

Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI We find ourselves in an unprecedented crisis, in response to which there has been an unprecedented infringement upon civil liberties.

Editorial: The indecisive approach in relation to schools and courts places lives at risk

@JamieBrysonCPNI Editor@UnionistVoice.com  This outlet, as you may guess by the title, is a partisan publication which exists to provide a voice and platform to the unionist community. However, during times such as the crisis we face, our partisan differences fade into insignificance, therefore if there are issues to be raised or highlighted that affect any […]

Inequality under the law: ‘hear no Provo, see no Provo, speak no Provo’

Editor@Unionistvoice.com  @JamieBrysonCPNI I will start this piece by setting out my position clearly, given there will be those who would seek to misrepresent my point for their own agenda. I oppose all crime, and I support the pursuit of criminal activity wherever it takes place. However, I want the pursuit of crime to be equal […]

For over 8 years I have been subjected to relentless abuse, trolling and targeted harassment. Some of this has been in the form of random individuals hurling the most vile abuse imaginable, other times it has been part of a clearly orchestrated campaign to spread malicious rumours- which the perpetrators hope will take on the […]

Nolan’s riposte has exposed the liberal elite commentariat and the ‘peace process’ journalism they demand

Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI  There was an interesting side issue during today’s Nolan Show. The broadcaster took to task a group of commentators who spent recent days criticising the media for the platform offered to the Quinn family. This group, a mainstay of the liberal elite, subtly- and sometimes not so subtly- accused certain journalists of using […]

ANALYSIS: Scathing IPSO judgement in Matthews v Sunday World sets a significant precedent

Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI Let me begin this piece by drawing attention to the fact that whilst the recent Matthews IPSO judgement is significant, not only due to the precedent set but also the scathing conclusion of the panel, at the heart of all of this is a grieving family who were subjected to perhaps the most […]
