A survey, which engaged with over 1,000 people across a cross section of the Unionist and Loyalist community has published its findings:
91.08% of those who participated believed that the Northern Ireland had to be abolished in its entirety
86.49% would now vote against the Belfast Agreement
80.78% believe Unionism should boycott all North-South meetings
89.51% supported collapsing the Northern Ireland Assembly in protest against the Protocol
88.62% support a protest in Dublin with 55.78% of participants saying they would attend personally
93.14% believe that the Loyalist community is discriminated against by the PSNI
94.80% believe that the Republican community is given preferential treatment by the PSNI
50.05% would, if an election was held tomorrow, vote for the anti agreement TUV
The significant findings demonstrate a remarkable shift within the Loyalist community, demonstrating that viewpoints once labelled ‘extreme’, ‘hardline’ or ‘fringe’ are now mainstream within the Loyalist community. Those who support the Belfast Agreement are in a small minority within the Loyalist community, with a remarkable 88.62% also supporting a protest in Dublin.
In addition, and significantly, over 89% of participants support collapsing the Assembly thus demonstrating the growing view that the so called ‘peace process’ in inherently biased and is designed to dismantle the Union.

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Unionist Voice than ever but unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.
The Unionist Voice is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.
f everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Unionist Voice– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
