The Jamie Bryson bashers were out of their blocks quicker than Usain Bolt to ridicule the true-blue flag protester who's found himself at the centre of a political minefield at Stormont over his odd-couple links to his former foes in Sinn Féin.

Within hours of the revelations that the Bangor-born blogger, who once refused to condemn the UVF, had been advised by an influential Sinn Féin minister and a party activist over his appearance in front of a Stormont committee last year, the cartoonists were poking fun at him. And a spoof Sinn Féin election poster with Bryson's face on it popped up online.
