This chapter discusses the implications of victory over the Liberal government. The defeat of Home Rule was immediately interpreted as an irrevocable achievement which cleared the political agenda and permitted reform agitation. From one perspective, therefore, the victory of 1893 was of equivocal value, for it exposed the profound inadequacy of the Unionist Alliance just as it demoralized the Liberals.
