Killing Home Rule with Kindness.

"When the Prime Minister met the First Minister on Friday afternoon she continued a long-standing Unionist tradition of attempting to “kill Home Rule with kindness”. When did this start? Just before the poll tax? When Maggie declared we could have indy - all we had to do was vote a majority of SNP MPs in? Was it when the first referendum for Home Rule was fixed by having the 40% rule? Was it when sanctions bit deeply on our poor, incapable and terminally ill? I am also intrigued as to how a democratic deficit leading to a Leave vote is not described as grievance yet we need to 'stoke our grievances'? Why do we need to stoke what is apparent and actual - our inability to get democratic representation for our people. To day every Scottish MP bar one is voting against Trident renewal yet it will be based by non-residents so that these dangerous toys need never be on their soil. I view Mr Torrance as the antithesis of the maddest of mad cybernate online. It doesn't matter what the evidence is, he has the answer.

What was the background to the Conservative policy of ‘killing Home Rule with kindness’?

How did the Conservatives kill Home Rule with kindness?

The results of the 1886 election in Britain had far reaching consequences for Ireland and the Home Rule Movement. In Britain too, the events of 1886 changed the nature of politics. Between 1885 and 1886 the Liberals had dominated British politics. The split over Home Rule weakened it. For the next twenty years, up to 1906, the Conservatives were the dominant party. As a whole, the party fervently believed that Home Rule was for the good of Ireland and the Empire. They believed that the people of Ireland did not actually want Home Rule but were led astray by clever agitators like Parnell.
