Opinion: ‘Spirit’ of the Belfast Agreement is a fools utopia, it is time to repeal the 98 Act

By Jamie Bryson The comments by DUP leader Arlene Foster have again re-ignited debate around the Belfast Agreement.

EDITORIAL: Let all crime be rooted out, but let us ensure the process is fair and that the law is applied equally

Editorial- By Jamie Bryson Let me begin this piece by very clearly summarising the core point, lest anyone- either mistakenly or deliberately- misinterprets the argument being advanced. If there is criminal activity taking place, regardless of whom it is carried out by or from which community it emanates, then the perpetrators should be rooted out […]

You can read Sean Murray’s article HERE and the original ‘Glenanne Gang’ article published by Unionist Voice HERE By Jamie Bryson We, as unionists, must not be afraid of debate or to engage with our political opponents.

NEWS: Jamie Bryson writes extensively on his recent arrest with serious questions for the PSNI

It is only now (Sunday) that I have had the opportunity to properly write about the events of recent days.

Unionist negotiators must demand cultural protections around parades and bonfires

Unionist negotiators must demand cultural protections around parades and bonfires

As the Irish language lobby increase their ever expanding list of demands, it is prudent for the unionist community to reflect upon what legislative provisions are being discussed for the protection of the Protestant, Unionist and Loyalist culture and traditions. With much talk about ‘rights based issues’, it is notable that any reference to the […]
