Ourselves Alone in Ulster

Excerpt from Ourselves Alone in Ulster In a speech delivered on December 14, 1917, Mr. Lloyd George spoke of "a definite and clear line of action, intelligible in consciences of a certain quality" - "Ourselves first, ourselves last, ourselves all the time, and ourselves alone." "It is pretty mean, he added, but there are in every country men built that way, and you must reckon with them in the world." A subtle question of casuistry could be raised as to how great a number of people must be united to make this motto either a despicable or an honourable one. It would doubtless be thought very creditable in an Empire. How about a United Kingdom - a Nation - or half a Province of a nation? This problem was decided without difficulty by northeast Ulster. The superiority of its wealth, the vigour of its creed, the self-confidence of its men - there were its sufficient credentials for a policy of ourselves first and last, "ourselves all the time." North-east Ulster had no wrongs pr sufferings to proclaim to the human conscience. The only trouble was a story as old as the world, that in its proud prosperity it fell into those fearful apprehensions that haunt the way of the wealthy, driving them in every age to multiply safeguards and shelters for their riches and power. North-east Ulster required, in a changing world, that the guarantees of its commercial interests should remain unchanged.
