Unionism must resist the Court’s ‘bonfire guidance’ meddling

Unionism must resist the Court’s ‘bonfire guidance’ meddling

By Jamie Bryson On 21 September 2021 Horner J delivered his judgment in an application for Judicial Review which had been brought by nationalists, seeking interim injunctive relief, on 10th July 2021 in relation to a cultural celebration at Adam Street in North Belfast. This application is separate from the wholly unmeritorious parallel application brought […]

DUP right to leverage the Belfast Agreement- but ultimately it must also be dismantled

DUP right to leverage the Belfast Agreement- but ultimately it must also be dismantled

By Jamie Bryson The DUP leader Jeffrey Donaldson has very clearly set out that it is the institutions or the Protocol, but it can not be both. That position should have been obvious to political unionism from the Protocol’s very inception. The Belfast Agreement was always a deceptive snare, which sadly some unionists were unwittingly […]

PSNI report is an appalling example of their pro-nationalist political agenda

PSNI report is an appalling example of their pro-nationalist political agenda

By Jamie Bryson The PSNI report is an extraordinary effort to take two tier policing to a new level. This report puts into writing the core ethos of the PSNI, which is plainly- as an overriding objective- to secure, and maintain, the support of the nationalist community. In this context, as a collateral purpose the […]

Two-tier policing is shamefully obvious- the PSNI must be significantly reformed at the very least

Two-tier policing is shamefully obvious- the PSNI must be significantly reformed at the very least

By Jamie Bryson Policing was conceived in the womb of political appeasement. The organisation came into being based on the proposition that the RUC had to be disbanded, because it commanded no support from the nationalist community. And thus, a police service was created with a core objective of winning nationalist support. All things, including […]

EDITORIAL: Unionism must dismantle both the Protocol and the Belfast Agreement in order to save the Union

By Jamie Bryson @JamieBrysonCPNI  The objective of the Protocol- set out within their own communique- is to reorient trade away from GB and towards the Irish Republic. It is an obvious conclusion therefore that continuing- for any period of time- to implement the Protocol is to assist it to embed. So too is it intellectually […]

PSNI fail to investigate unlawful Relatives for Justice procession

PSNI fail to investigate unlawful Relatives for Justice procession

by Jamie Bryson  The lack of investigation into a procession held by republican group Relatives for Justice on 29 July 2021, when viewed in the light of the PSNI desperation to pursue peaceful loyalist protests, illuminates another example of two-tier policing. A group of republicans gathered in fancy dress at Stormont on 29 July 2021, […]

Why mandatory regulation of cultural expression should be robustly rejected by the PUL community

Why mandatory regulation of cultural expression should be robustly rejected by the PUL community

By Jamie Bryson The call for ‘mandatory regulation’ of bonfires from nationalists is unsurprising. In keeping with their ‘never waste a crisis’ mantra, it was entirely predictable that they would weaponise a tragic accident at a bonfire in Ballysillan, and  utilised it in the continued advancement of their cultural war. However, it was surprising to […]
