    I think Home Rule was passed in 1914 so Ireland had more options then maybe? I don't know how they were allowed to rebel though, I don't know how much stronger Home Rule would have made them. I've forgotten all my Irish history though lol

    Also there was a temporary exclusion of NI in 1914, might have made it easier somehow. Yeah, you might have guessed history isn't my forte!

    Asquith failed to listen to David Lloyd and Churchill over partion of the Northern states whilst the cons rally the Unionists to resist at all costs. Had Asquith a few years before taken Ulster seriously he could have put forward a reasonable partition however when they got close to it war broke out and attention turned away.

    Prior to all that House of lords prevented the 2nd bill whilst Cons and whig branch of the liberals prevented the 1st.
