Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Saunderson’s ideals, which had perturbed some northeners even during his contest with Monroe, but which therefore made him more attractive to Dublin Toryism, and on 30 December he was hailed by its leading organ as an appropriate leader for the new loyalism. The crystallization of Tory policy after 1886 along the lines of loyalist orthodoxy meant that Saunderson had an alternative ministerial audience beyond that represented by Churchill and his cronies. Establishing links with individual ministers was only a part of a larger scheme of proselytism. Throughout 1886 and 1887 Saunderson established the broad outlines of his future political activity.

Keywords: Dublin Toryism; loyalism; Churchill; proselytism
