DUP MLAs and MPs will be held accountable by the electorate for the leadership positions they endorse

DUP MLAs and MPs will be held accountable by the electorate for the leadership positions they endorse

By Jamie Bryson It is trite to point out that the DUP MLAs and MPs will select the new leader. As such 18 votes is all that is required for either Edwin Poots or Sir Jeffrey Donaldson to attain the leadership of the party. However, each DUP MLA and MP who casts a vote does […]

EDITORIAL: Foster remaining for two months is an impediment to the policy progress which must be made

By Jamie Bryson There has been some confused analysis that this somehow related to a vote on gay conversion therapy. This is simply untrue.

A Perfect Storm- The growing discontent across grassroots unionism

A Perfect Storm- The growing discontent across grassroots unionism

By Jamie Bryson At the centre of the perfect storm brewing in Northern Ireland is the root cause of all the problems unionism has encountered over the past two decades, the Belfast Agreement. The agreement created a process whereby unionism- as the price of the IRA stopping murdering our community- had to acquiesce to a […]

EDITORIAL: Why Unionism and Loyalism must withdraw all support for the PSNI in defence of the rule of law

By Jamie Bryson  The DUP leader and First Minister Arlene Foster has finally arrived at the realisation that the Chief Constable’s position is “untenable”. She has accordingly called for his resignation. The Chief Constable has refused. The DUP are now bound by their own logic; policing is so discredited, so biased and so politically motivated […]

EDITORIAL: Unionism/loyalism must withdraw support for the Belfast Agreement to save the Union

By Jamie Bryson @JamieBrysonCPNI  The Belfast Agreement is the underlying cause of all the problems Unionism now faces. The rot began in earnest in 1998, and has continued at pace ever since.  It breathed live into what is commonly known as the ‘peace process’, which is Belfast Agreement speak for the method of perpetual appeasement […]

The latest targeting of Nolan is another strand of a sophisticated republican campaign to control public discourse

By Jamie Bryson @JamieBrysonCPNI A number of years ago Sinn Fein publicly advertised for “social media activists”. What precisely are these activists deployed to do?

The union-wrecking Protocol- shredding cross community consent- illuminates the ‘process’ is really about ensuring nationalist supremacy

The union-wrecking Protocol- shredding cross community consent- illuminates the ‘process’ is really about ensuring nationalist supremacy

By Jamie Bryson The Secretary of State, without a hint of shame, claimed last week that he was pro union. Of course- in keeping with the two tier Belfast Agreement- nationalists howled in outrage, lecturing us all on the requirement for the Secretary of State to be “neutral” as a “co-guarantor” of the agreement. There […]

EDITORIAL: Unionism must unite to resist the NI Protocol and break free from the infectious Belfast Agreement

EDITORIAL: Unionism must unite to resist the NI Protocol and break free from the infectious Belfast Agreement

By Jamie Bryson The Belfast Agreement is persistently evoked every time nationalism has another insatiable demand. That tells you something; when nationalism seek to advance their political objectives, their weapon of choice is the Belfast Agreement. If that pernicious agreement was actually about equality and respect for all traditions, then it would stand to reason […]
