John Bull's Other Island a comedy about Ireland by G. Bernard Shaw
1904 who was born in Dublin.
The play is about Larry Doyle from Ireland who turned his back on his
heritage to fit in with the English and Tom Broadbent, his English
business partner who run a firm in London, they go to Ireland where
Doyle was born to develop some land. Doyle long ago disillusioned with
Ireland while Broadbent is romantic about it. Broadbent becomes a
favourite of the people and will marry Nora Reilly a woman waiting for
Doyle, who is happy to let her go, while trying to become the local
candidate for Parliament but after Doyle refuses enabling Broadbent
who has called in' all his loans given "so easily" to the locals
against their homes and intends as he planned from the beginning to
make the area into an amusement park.
The local defrocked priest Father Peter Keegan, the political opposite
who sees through Broadbent from the outset warns the people against
him. The play premiered in London, 1904. It was a huge success and the
theatre went on to produce many Shaw plays.
Dealing with the Irish question of the time, the play was seen by many
British establishment figures, with King Edward VII who laughed so
hard he broke his chair. Shaw's name was made in London.More than a
hundred years later and a couple of revolutions in Ireland little has
changed since 1904.
"But crucially, besides the fact that republicanism has been defeated
and disfigured is "the devious way that it was all brought about" as
Brendan Hughes bitterly complained. Obfuscation -- or 'creative
ambiguity' as it is branded -- has been central to the peace process.
(207) Professor Roy Foster writes that "the British quickly learned
linguistic ingenuity; Orwell would have appreciated the way ‘an
"agreed Ireland" ‘turned out to mean the very opposite of a ‘united
Ireland’, while ‘power-sharing’ came to denote ‘separate spheres’, not
As Jim Gibney reminds us:
"If there is one big lesson coming out of the peace process...it is
words like 'certainty' and 'clarity' are not part of the creative
lexicon that conflict resolution requires if it is to be
successful...Give me the language of ambiguity...It has oiled the
engine of the peace process. Long may it continue to do so." (209)
Or as Bernadette Devlin McAliskey puts it more bluntly, peace has been
bought by "perjury, fraud, corruption, cheating and lying". (210)
Brendan Hughes was on solid ground when complaining that "the process
had created a class of professional liars and unfortunately it
contains many Republicans". (211) As a result of this, the legacy of
the ‘peace process’ for republicanism is not only defeat but also far
more serious, the relinquishing of the moral position of the
republican struggle." - Pensive Quill
