William Pitt, the Prime Minister of Britain when the Union of Ireland and England was formed in 1801, said that it was in the "interest of England to govern Ireland". In what aspect of Ireland and its relationship with England was it in the interest of England to do so? What was the exact dynamic of the relationship between the countries @ that time? Was trade and profit a part of it? In what way?
