Strengthening the Union with UK-US Relations | Ian Paisley MP


Today in Westminster Hall, I attended the Transatlantic capital to capital exchange where 26 members of Congress, including the House Majority Leader The Hon. Steve Scalise, all spoke.


I was the sole Northern Ireland representative at this incredibly important engagement, he made a keynote speech on Northern Ireland and its part in the special relationship with the USA.


I would very much like to reflect upon the significant level of trade that already exists between NI and the USA, that only through our relationship as part of the union can this be strengthened and expanded.


Our university exchange programme where we share learning and expertise between US and UK students, the fact that half of all foreign direct investment in NI is from US-based companies and that the 200 US companies already invested in NI re-invest and continue to grow.


The United States after our home market, is Northern Ireland's largest export market, with an estimated 330,000 North American tourists visiting Ulster each year, all of this orders well for the future.


After meeting Mr Paisley, contrary to the propaganda from Irish republicans, Americans understand the concept of "no taxation without representation" and understand objections to the unelected European Union having a say in trade and other matters which impact Northern Ireland without any democratic accountability.


They understand too that Northern Ireland's economic success is built upon the reality of being part of the fifth largest economy in the world that already has an established trade relationship with the USA and accept that the promoters of a United Ireland are engaged in fantasy politics.


The special relationship with the USA embraces all parts of the United Kingdom, especially Northern Ireland!

Brexit vindicated: EU 'declares economic war' on Hungary in new assault on democracy

Story by David Maddox  
Britain's decision to leave the European Union (EU) has been further "vindicated", according to a senior Brexiteer, after it emerged last night that Brussels officials led by Ursula von der Leyen are planning yet another assault on democracy on the continent.
The Financial Times revealed that the European Commission has drawn up a plan to sabotage Hungary's economy if Viktor Orbán blocks a 50 billion euro aid package to Ukraine this week.
A secret internal document lays out Budapest's economic…

One Year On: The Union is Still 'not safe'!

Graveside Memorial on the 25th Anniversary of the Martyrdom of Leading Loyalist – Brigadier William Stephen Wright, December 27th, 2022.

Loyal men and women of Ulster: I bid you a good afternoon, and welcome you, all of you, here to Seagoe Graveyard - all that is who have come together as one in order to pay personal tribute to a man now referred to by many as ‘Ulster’s Braveheart’ – our late and much-loved friend, Billy Wright. Give voice to your support, loyal friends.

They say that retrospect, that is, looking back with the passing of time, is always wise. Today, with the value of 25 years of time’s passing,…

16/10/23 My Question to all Unionist Parties here in Northern Ireland, UK: With regard to the question of the 'Warm Home Discount Scheme' practiced in the Sovereign State of Great Britain', why does this scheme 'NOT APPLY in Northern Ireland', IF Northern Ireland still remains an integral part of the Sovereign State of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, UK? Unionists of all hues are obviously fully aware of this blatant discrimination against Northern Ireland citizens, as Danny Kinahan, Ulster Unionist Party member for South Antrim posed the question below as far back as 2017! So, where are the Unionist and DUP Unionist, and TUV Unionist Party voices on this vital matter? Time to put Ulster First Unionist gentlemen and ladies! Wa…

29/9/23 J. Bryson Piece , June 30th: "Lord Justice McCloskey in Allister et al: NI belongs more to the EU… than the UK”. My comment: Sure we told the DUP and Sammy Wilson this fact months ago on Centre for the Union site! The UK State of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, UK, no longer exists, if Article 6 of the Acts of Union are accepted as having been 'disapplied', and the bastard son of the N.I. Protocol i.e. the Windsor Framework are legally applied and surrendered to by Northern Ireland politicians. The 'done deal' referred to by 'Risky' Sunak immediately splits Northern Ireland from Great Britain, and places us legally and immorally within the Sovereign territory of the European Union. POLITICAL …
