Example text

However, in the end the solution was rejected vehemently by the Unionists, leading a frustrated Asquith to try and pass the unamended bill as written with no special treatment for Ulster. During the early summer of 1914, with the failure of the compromise, the situation polarised dramatically. Bonar Law took the unprecedented step of threatening to use the Tory Lords to hold up the military budget unless he received an explicit promise that British troops would not be used to coerce Ulster unless a general election were called on the future of the Home Rule Bill.

He renewed his earlier offer of county option but this time with no fixed time limit. In the end this offer was never made, although it was unlikely to have succeeded anyhow considering Carson’s recent pronouncements. The worsening situation in Europe, where the Austrians were already moving troops into Serbia, prompted Bonar Law to contact Asquith suggesting that in the interests of national unity to face the growing crisis in the Balkans, the Irish issue be shelved and the matter of home rule postponed until the approaching continental conflict was resolved.

However, in the political culture of advanced nationalism at the time his lack of precision and dogma made him an ideal if unlikely rallying point. Oddly his main pastime had been arguing with other radical factions rather than marshalling them but the sheer preponderance of advanced Nationalist groups led him to the idea of creating a closer federation of organisations who could better stand up to the dominance of the Home Rule party. To this end he became involved in the formation of Cumann na nGaedheal in 1900 (a name later used by the governing party of the Free State between 1922 and 1932) under the old Fenian John O’Leary and Maud Gonne.
