This chapter examines the unravelling of the Union between 1886 and 1921. It discusses the continuing link between Union and Empire, the incoherence of Diceyan Unionism, centre-periphery politics, the attempted Unionist coup-d’etat in 1910-14, Bonar Law and Ulster paramilitarism, George V’s threatened vetoes, and primoridal and instrumental Unionism. By 1921, the Union question had resolved into a Northern Ireland question and an imperial question. It left two ragged ends from the 1886 attempt to settle it, namely representation and finance in the outlying parts of the Union.

Keywords:   Home Rule bills, Government of Ireland bills, centre-periphery politics, A.V. Dicey, parliamentary sovereignty, A. Bonar Law, George V, royal vetoes, Ulster Protesetantism, partition of Ireland
