The parameters of politics
in George III

This chapter describes the political system in Great Britain during the first decade of the regime of George III, discussing criticism that he was subverting to pre-Bill of Rights practice and investigating whether he was subverting the constitution, as portrayed by the traditional interpretation long held by Whig or liberal historians. It explains that, during the period from 1760 to 1770, the political system was not yet markedly susceptible to outside pressure, and that the key centres of power were the Crown, the cabinet and the House of Commons.
