Product Description

A satire on the repeated motions for the removal of Ministers from Jan. to 1.March, when Fox’s motion for an address to the King was carried by twelve only. It started with an attempt by Fox to make Pitt resign over his East India Bill, but following a series of further attempts which were resisted by both Pitt and the King and a shrinking majority for Fox. Parliament was eventually dissolved on the 25th March. B.M No. 6449
