Excerpt from The Great Fallacy: A Speech by the Right Rev. The Lord Bishop of Derry, D.D., Delivered in the Albert Hall, London, on Saturday, 22nd April, 1892
The little hills righteousness unto the people. Do you not see how the two things, righteousness and peace, stand together? Without righteousness there can be no true peace. There is no justice, no righteousness in this Bill loud cheers)- none in its provisions, none in the clauses, none in the schedules, which jockey the poor policeman and cheat the poor Civil servant, and ruin the landlord, and break the widow's heart. (renewed cheers.) It pours its shoddy gifts and lavi shes its shabby benedictions upon those who are dishonest and untrustworthy - (hear, hear) - and it places those men in power. And as it has no righteousness it can give no peace. And so, in bidding farewell to this imbecile caricature of a Consti tution for Ireland - (loud and prolonged cheering) - I ask you to carry away with you this brief summary - Morally, it is the great betrayal - (cheers) - logically, it is the great fallacy - (cheers) religiously, it is the great sectarianism - (cheers)-financially, it is the great swindle socially, it is the great break up - (cheers) - and, Imperially, it is the great break down. (vociferous cheering).
