Griffith sought to divert the Irish from their parliamentary attempt to win self-government through legislative action. Instead, he urged passive resistance as the way to achieve Home Rule. Irishmen were to refuse to pay British taxes, while Irish members of parliament were to stay away from Westminster and to sit in Ireland as a national council. This policy of ‘abstention’ was fundamental to the first Dáil Éireann, elected in 1918.
