    Ulster Solidarity Appeal – Give All You Can! 

    Ulster is still dear to the hearts of quite a few Brits.


    Match your love with your money, please!

    Legal action has been launched against the NI Protocol” />


     “We are a beautiful and proud United Kingdom, our strength rests on our bond together.

    “We must not allow a foreign institution to impose and rip apart those bonds that bind us together. We must stand shoulder to shoulder together to oppose these attempts to fracture the very essence of our Union.

    “We are asking all of you that care about Northern Ireland, our Union and our United Kingdom to join us and be part of our campaign by adding your voice and contributing what you can to fight to protect our Union in this legal case.

    “We have already had huge support, but we want you to be part of it too. Join with us. Step up and be counted. Protect our Union and join our campaign.”

    The Crowdfunding appeal can be found at http://www.crowdjustice.com/case/defending-the-union-of-the-uk/

    Steve Aiken leader of the UUP said: “The NI Protocol fundamentally undermines the integrity of the United Kingdom, the Belfast Agreement and the principle of consent. As one of the parties that negotiated the Agreement, we believe we have to take every political, diplomatic and legal avenue open to us to see the invidious, unequal NI Protocol annulled because every day we see the very principles on which the Belfast Agreement was created being trampled on by those who claim to put the peace process at the centre of their arguments. We encourage everyone who believes in the Union and in the Belfast Agreement to support this legal case.”


    Jim Allister, leader of the TUV said: “The Protocol annexes Northern Ireland into the EU, leaving us subject to laws we did not make and cannot change.



For me the challenge and opportunity of this Judicial Review is to end such vassalage and reunify the United Kingdom by removing the constitutional threat of many of our laws not being made in Belfast or London, but in Brussels under foreign aegis and control.



It is about “taking back control” in a most fundamental way by restoring the key sovereignty principle of being governed only by our own nation’s laws, legislatures and courts. Home Rule, not Foreign Rule!”

Arlene Foster, First Minister of Northern Ireland…


….and Leader of the DUP added:

“We cannot allow our United Kingdom to be ripped apart and our UK internal market to be divided in order to protect the single market of the EU. When I launched a petition calling for unfettered GB-NI trade, over 100k people joined with us in just over 24hrs, this is another opportunity for everyone who opposes the Protocol to play their part.


“We will work with other Unionists to send a united message to our Government and to free Northern Ireland from the Protocol.

Whilst the courts is one front in this fight, the UK Government must use all powers at its disposal to immediately remove any barriers to unfettered trade within the United Kingdom.”

The legal action has been lodged in the High Court of Northern Ireland and the next hearing date is the 13th April with an anticipated full hearing of the matter on 13th May 2021.

The crowdfunding campaign is to facilitate wide participation in the legal action

    Before An Empire’s Eyes….Top Unionist Backs Disloyal SDLP 

    So the Leader of the Ulster Unionist Party, Mike Nesbitt has declared – 

    “Well, I will be standing square behind that notion and I will be transferring from my Ulster Unionist votes to the SDLP.”

    Nesbitt and SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood

    When Mr Nesbitt was asked if that meant he would vote Ulster Unionist ‘1’ and then SDLP next, he said: “Yes.”

    Mike Nesbitt: I’ll transfer my vote to SDLP before unionists

    ‘Before an empire’s eyes, the traitor claims his price…’


    That line from Kipling’s famous poem – Ulster 1912 – comes to mind.

    The SDLP was once, under Gerry Fitt, a fairly respectable party…



    Blood-Beast, Reynolds, Hume


    …but that ended the day the po-faced Hume joined hands with Blood-Beast Adams and the Eire’s Albert Reynolds in their ‘pan-nationalist’ pact against Ulster’s right to self-determination.

    But even before that overt display of disloyalty, it would have been outrageous for any unionist in any party not to go down the ballot paper and ensure his or her vote for every possible unionist candidate…

    • …no matter whether UUP, DUP, or, best option of all, Jim Alister’s TUV.
    • Traditional Unionist Values is the feistiest and most determined party in its commitment to the cause of the Ulster Brits’ right never to be surrendered to the expansionist republic next door.
    • ——–
    • Has Nesbitt forgotten who affronted every loyal citizen in every one of Ulster’s six counties by denying them the right enjoyed by all other subjects of HM The Queen in her United Kingdom, to have their flag displayed on the driving licenses they carry?



    SDLP- Ulster’s SuDeten-Land Party! 


    But it’s not so hard to figure out what’s motivated Nesbitt to pay the price.

    The outgoing ‘Executive’ was a coalition of the DUP and the IRA’s ‘political wing,’ Sinn Fein.

    Nesbitt desperately wants to replace that unwholesome alliance with another one, equally unwholesome…

    …with his own party and the SDLP, whose leader, Colum Eastwood, readily talks about the brand of Irish republicanism to which I give allegiance…



    Odd coupling?

    Given Nesbitt’s threadbare unionism, maybe not so odd after all!
