EXCLUSIVE: The DUP’s blueprint for bringing down the Prime Minister and saving the Union

By Jamie Bryson The Government is privately assuring the DUP that the Prime Minister’s letter is reflective of what the European Union wants, and is not the position of Her Majesty’s Government.

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’.

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.
