 Irish Home Rule
In the fall of 1913 Sir Edward Carson, leader of the Ulster Unionist Council, and Andrew Bonar Law, leader of the Conservative Party, decided that exclusion might offer a reasonable solution, though they feared it might earn them the resentment of southern Unionists wishing to uphold the 1801 Act of Union between Ireland and Britain.

User:Mintguy Mintguy User talk: Mintguy (T) 09:39, 4 May 2004 (UTC) I agreed with (and helped research) the original change (which was desperately needed for the sake of consistency) to The Labour Party (UK) and The Conservative Party (UK) but in practice I have found the "The"s tend to produce awkward links.

 Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland switch's party affiliation to Ian Paisley's Democratic Unionists
The historic decision followed years of growing tensions between the moderate leadership of the Ulster Unionists, who have supported Northern Ireland's decade-old peace process, and the conservative leaders of the Orange Order, who have largely rejected it.
Orange Grandmaster Robert Saulters said the brotherhood, which has more than 50,000 members in this province of 1.7 million people, had decided to withdraw because the Ulster Unionists were no longer the major Protestant-backed party.
The move ended the Orangemen's right to hold scores of seats within the grassroots Ulster Unionist Council, which wields the power to elect and topple Ulster Unionist leaders.
