As member of Parliament for Preston from 1830 until 1832, Henry Hunt firmly believed that the Reform Bill did not go nearly far enough.

This print is after the satire of the same name by Charles James Grant, which was published by M Clarke on 20th April 1831.

On 22nd April 1831 the King attended the House of Lords and dissolved Parliament, thus paving the way for the general election held between 28th April and 1st June, at which the Whigs polled a majority of 136 over the Tories, giving the Whigs real power for the first time in many decades. The cartoon is after the satire by Sharpshooter, published by John Fairburn on 30th April 1831.

The print is a re-work of the satire titled 'The Reformers Attack the Old Rotten Tree; or the Foul Nests of the Cormorants in Danger', itself a reference to the old Rotten Borough political constituencies. Cf. John & Jennifer May, Commemorative Pottery 1780-1900, pl.212 and Lincoln Hallinan, British Commemoratives; Royalty, Politics, War and Sport, pl.106.
