EDITORIAL: Marie Anderson is out of control, she must resign

This morning’s BBC Nolan Show, via an investigation by David Thompson, once again provided a glimpse into the increasingly erratic and legally questionable behaviour of the Northern Ireland Public Services Ombudsman, who also doubles up as the Local Government Commissioner for Standards, Marie Anderson. In her latest escapade it was revealed that she had threatened […]

EDITORIAL: Judicial Review into police powers raises important constitutional law and journalistic privilege issues

EDITORIAL: Judicial Review into police powers raises important constitutional law and journalistic privilege issues

By Jamie Bryson The upcoming Judicial Review (JR) I have brought before the High Court raises important issues around the exercise of police powers and the issue of journalistic material being seized beyond the scope of warrants. It will, naturally, affect me as the applicant- but more importantly it will have ramifications for a wide […]

EDITORIAL: The pro-EU political establishment are launching an insurgency against the democratic will of the British people

By Jamie Bryson @JamieBrysonCPNI The pro-EU political establishment are launching an insurgency against the democratic will of the British people. Every new desperate proposal on how to stop Brexit, couched to create the illusion that it is about handing power to the people, is in fact designed to do quite the opposite. The arch Europhiles […]

EDITORIAL: ‘Bag-gate’ neatly undermines nationalism’s own more extreme grievance narratives

EDITORIAL: ‘Bag-gate’ neatly undermines nationalism’s own more extreme grievance narratives

By Jamie Bryson On Sunday night I quite deliberately tweeted an image of a green, white and orange plastic bag being used by JD Sports. It is not simply colours as part of a wider design- like a Tesco bag- rather it looks identical to an Irish flag with 3 equally divided dominant colours.  Making no comment […]

Analysis: Outrageous attempt by nationalist legacy activists to once again target Mr Justice McCloskey

Analysis: Outrageous attempt by nationalist legacy activists to once again target Mr Justice McCloskey

By Jamie Bryson In a remarkable coincidence I happened to find that Mr Justice McCloskey had unilaterally decided to list my ongoing Judicial Review case against the unlawful actions of the PSNI and SIA on the same morning as the application by Fine Point films, the company behind the controversial Loughinisland film. By virtue of […]

Editorial: East Belfast ‘hub’ row exposes the institutionalised sectarianism directed at the unionist community

Editorial: East Belfast ‘hub’ row exposes the institutionalised sectarianism directed at the unionist community

By Jamie Bryson   “Horrified”. That is how Labour MP Kate Hoey described the news of masked contractors invading a community sports facility in East Belfast to tear down a self-funded hub, designed to provide education and mental health provision for young people, many of whom come from areas of social deprivation. That was bad […]

EDITORIAL: Fatally flawed Communities in Transition report reads like an Alliance party manifesto

EDITORIAL: Fatally flawed Communities in Transition report reads like an Alliance party manifesto

By Jamie Bryson Last week I, with a number of other loyalists and community representatives, attended a public meeting as part of the Communities In Transition (CIT) project. This project flows from the Fresh Start agreement, which was set up in response to an internal Provisional IRA feud which had seen two murders on the […]

EDITORIAL: The EU want to raise an army, do we really think they won’t eventually turn it on us?

EDITORIAL: The EU want to raise an army, do we really think they won’t eventually turn it on us?

By Jamie Bryson The Withdrawal Agreement would turn Northern Ireland into an EU colony, with Dublin having greater say on aspects of the internal affairs of Northern Ireland than the sovereign Government. This arrangement would not be temporary, but rather a permanent lock from which Northern Ireland can never escape; forever handcuffed as hostages of […]

EDITORIAL: Sinn Fein activists win no prizes for spending Halloween dressed up a ‘civic nationalists’

By Jamie Bryson “If I was to write a letter on behalf of loyalists and unionists and flaunt myself all over the media promoting it, I would be shunned and drummed out of the profession.” That was the view of one astounded legal professional speaking to me in recent days about the ‘Leo Letter’. There […]
