ANALYSIS: The Charity Commission’s “problematic culture” must be eradicated

ANALYSIS: The Charity Commission’s “problematic culture” must be eradicated

By Jamie Bryson  The Charity Commission of Northern Ireland (CCNI) has a culture of superiority and elitism running throughout it. Career civil servants were brought into post and empowered with draconian statutory powers, despite having no legal qualifications. It is no surprise therefore that more often than not they got it badly wrong. Since its […]

We are willingly surrendering our hard-won freedoms and liberty on the altar of an illogical lockdown

We are willingly surrendering our hard-won freedoms and liberty on the altar of an illogical lockdown

By Jamie Bryson In March 2020 when the Executive embarked on the initial lockdown, it did so with overwhelming community support. Despite rather quickly becoming a lockdown sceptic, I fully supported the initial lockdown. This was based on the predictions that 15,000 people were going to die; the predictions of Robin Swann and others were […]

Stephen Nolan’s ‘BBC Batman’ segment was Orwellian and completely ill-judged

Stephen Nolan’s ‘BBC Batman’ segment was Orwellian and completely ill-judged

By Jamie Bryson Let me begin by saying- lest my arguments be deliberately misconstrued- that I am not an anti-mask conspiracy theorist. I do not believe there is a New World Order conspiring to infect us all with 5G, or that Covid 19 is some secret experiment in mind control. In my mind the questionable […]

From ‘Warfare’ to ‘Lawfare’- Loyalism’s lost transition

From ‘Warfare’ to ‘Lawfare’- Loyalism’s lost transition

By Jamie Bryson @JamieBrysonCPNI  There will be two terms repeatedly used in this article. One is peace and the other is the process. It is necessary to particularise both at the outset. Peace, in my view, is an absence of violence. Those committed to peace are committed to pursuing their political objectives, or continuing ‘conflict’, […]

The real scandal of LAD is how the liberal elite legitimised their Orwellian hate campaign

The real scandal of LAD is how the liberal elite legitimised their Orwellian hate campaign

By Jamie Bryson @JamieBrysonCPNI This week the online trolling account ‘LAD’ disappeared. It came after one of its founders, John-Paul Whearty, took to social media to complain about being held accountable for the actions of the page. It was all a little bit like wallowing in self-pity and expressing sorrow because his actions had caught […]

Reductio ad absurdum- The PSNI enforcement of the Covid-19 Regulations has descended into a farce

Reductio ad absurdum- The PSNI enforcement of the Covid-19 Regulations has descended into a farce

By Jamie Bryson The PSNI response is being coordinated by ACC Alan Todd, who appears to consistently find himself down a rabbit hole on contentious issues. Despite being alerted to the fact the PSNI’s interpretation of the regulations were entirely wrong and had no basis in law, ACC Todd refused to listen and instead ploughed […]

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

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. We all need to collectively do what we can to save lives and help the NHS. All sensible and reasonable people are onboard with that […]

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

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. Democracy and our freedoms have all but been suspended in favour of a de-facto police-state, designed temporarily for the perfectly legitimate aim of serving the greater public good by slowing the transmission of […]

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

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’

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 […]
