The United Irish League has come under severe criticism for its alleged acts of terrorizing the country and violating the liberty of its citizens. The recent persecution of Dr Long has outraged the entire kingdom, shedding light on the League’s controversial tactics.
To counteract such incidents and limit the League’s influence, it is proposed that stringent penalties be imposed on those involved in these activities. This includes denying licenses to tradesmen participating in boycotting or intimidating others for a period of two years, and imprisoning individuals found guilty of encouraging such behavior based on religious beliefs for three months, without the option of a fine.
These measures are seen as necessary steps to protect the freedom and safety of citizens, and to potentially hold accountable those involved in the distressing incident with Dr Long. The kingdom hopes these actions will curb the United Irish League’s power and ensure a more peaceful and just society.
