Why did they scupper Home Rule? Tell me? I've yet to hear an answer from a Unionist about this.<quoted text> I am not going into a long winded explanation as i have been through this so many times but have you ever asked yourself why they scuppered home rule as you put it ? and for the record i do not need to check out any history
Its an embarrassing historical fact that Unionists try to hide.
The British Government and the IPP, House of Commons, majority of Irish people etc were all agreed on Home Rule within the UK. And the Unionists in Ulster blocked it through threats of violence and war.
Trechery really when you think of it. We were all British citizens back then. The British Government had made a decision, the IPP had the mandate of the majority of Irish people, the House of Commons supported it. And then the Unionists begin threatening terrorism against the Irish people (British citizens) if this democratic decision was brought in.
Shame really. There could have been a lot of lives spared on this island in the past 100 years if you had accepted democracy and the decision of the British Government.
