She hasn’t been completely candid ( that’s the nicest way I can think of saying it ) about the meeting she arranged
with the pm . How surprising -

After Sinn Fein’s victory in the December 1918 Westminster elections, the Irish Republican Army (IRA) started a guerilla war where local battalions of their forces ambushed Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) and British Army groups on patrol or just moving from one place to another. While they were very short of weapons, they took advantage of their superior knowledge of the local terrain and used the powerful element of striking first in surprise attacks to inflict serious losses on the enemy before withdrawing to nearby mountains or other safe-havens. This war lasted from January 1919 until July 1921 when a truce was agreed between the IRA and the British government.
