“Leading”. I’m surprised he can tie his own shoe laces. Why this guy continues to be news I do not know.

More interested in why anybody would believe in promoting & funding anything to do with the "culture, history & identity" of the West Winds estate. Mind you - wee Jamie obviously paid attention in school - he can do joined up writing. Trouble is, it was supposed to be somebody else putting their name to the accounts. Full marks for the handwriting. Downside: 6 months coming up for forgery - hopefully. Free the West Winds One.

Nolan gives him a lot of airtime which is an insult to the listeners. Might not get as much now though.

Something happened with him before and he still gets airtime. Here’s hoping it comes to an end soon. He’s no better than some of them boys in the new lodge.

He gets airtime because these “phone-in” shows have about 5 people who phone in everyday. Then a handful of headcases (usually the end is nigh types). There isn’t much competition.
As well as that, he actually does speak for a large portion of working class unionism in the city. There is a total disconnect between the elected and the electorate in working class unionist areas. They are poles apart on many fundamental issues. Bryson is their voice.
So, if the BBC wants to understand the mindset of those involved in Avoniel, for example, they’ll get it exactly from Bryson, not the political representative of the area.

I would say a large portion is a bit of a stretch.

I wouldn’t. I think you’d find a large portion of people in the village, Shankill, Tiger’s Bay and working class east Belfast would agree with what Bryson has to say most of the time.

Flegs, pallets, tyres, our culture, OWC & not an 'O' Level between them. Their only educational achievement  is to get statemented.

That’s a poor enough comment tbh.

And so do the DUP and other unionist parties.  Re: issues like the bonefires, they all sing off the same hymn sheet (no pun intended).

It’s not. It doesn’t even make sense and it is pretty crass. Please use the education you received and stop making fun of people who have been assessed as having special needs.

to get statemented is to be assessed for a learning disabilty/special need.
