Ulster demo389 viewsAndrew Bonar Law, recently elected leader of the Conservative Party and the Leader of the Opposition, was guest of honour at a meticulously planned Ulster unionist demonstration at the Royal Ulster Agricultural Showground at Balmoral on Easter Tuesday 1912. Whereas Winston Churchill’s speech in Celtic Park on 8 February 1912 had an audience of 5,000 nationalists and liberals, Law was astounded to find himself with an audience of between 100,000 and 200,000, one of the largest political demonstrations in British history. He spoke eloquently, invoking the siege of Derry as a paradigm for Ulster’s plight, identifying the Parliament Act of 1911 as the equivalent of the boom constructed by the Jacobites across the Foyle during the great siege.

On route to Paris393 viewsPrime Minister Andrew Bonar Law pictured in The Graphic newspaper on his way to Paris for what turned out to be an unsuccessful conference on World War One reparations in January 1923. He proposed a scheme, which went by his name, for a final settlement of the reparations problem as an alternative to the application of force. However Poincare's French Government refused this scheme out of hand, and proceeded at once to the occupation of the Ruhr.

Glasgow speech435 viewsAndrew Bonar Law speaks to 1,000 of his party faithful at a meeting in the St Andrew's Hall, Glasgow, in October 1922. He set forth the principles on which his party stood, and devoted the opening of his speech to an explanation of how he came to resume the leadership of his party. This came about, he said, when he realised that the Coalition was losing ground and a split was inevitable.
