While the guy was very bigoted etc there were very clearly serious psychological issues going on there. It just shows you the day and age we are in that he got as much airtime as he did.

He was more to be pitied than scorned.  Any Unionist who took him seriously merely detracted from their own credibility.  Bryson was his side-show Bob.

True - are there any similar people on the nationalist/republican side  in comparsion to these lads - Bryson, Allister and Wells etc.  They always seem to be on Nolan.

Ludicrous. Some people actually listen to this sort of person too.

A lot of people do. For that reason, while I often found Willie Frazer to be comedy gold, he was a dangerous piece of work. He well knew it too.

All the bitterness can't have been good for him.

I'd say Ian g is quite glad he's passed away today.

Although he seems to be from a long line of bitterness so is likely to have had it instilled in him anyway but he did have a lot of reason to be bitter.
Im not sure how well rounded Id be having suffered the losses he did, without discussing the rights & wrongs of them.

I see Bryson is spouting that the Glenanne Gang is fake news made up by the Pat Finucane centre quoting his own blogs as evidence that it's all a myth! ;D

Thankfully no. It's detrimental to unionism that those eejits get so much exposure.
