Men refused to attend their ministrations; in some cases they were subjected to what was afterwards called boycotting.
Boycotting,however became ?'
In February 1883 Mr Trevelyan gave an account of his stewardship at Hawick, and said that all law-abiding Irishmen, whether Conservative or Liberal, were on one side, while on the other were those who " planned and executed the Galway and Dublin murders, the boycotting and firing into houses, the mutilation of cattle and intimidation of every sort."
In the House of Commons, on the 24th of May 1882, Gladstone said that boycotting required a sanction like every other creed, and that the sanction which alone made it effective " is the murder which is not to be denounced."
He has already suffered the wrath of Barbara Walters, who is now boycotting all of his movies.
