The political scenario in 1760
in George III

This chapter examines the political scenario in Great Britain in 1760. During this time, there was standing Whig opposition to Tory lineage in order to give more preference to the more respectable designation of the country interest. The main thrust of the political stance of the Whigs was to curb the power of the Crown. The chapter revaluates the political significance of George III's accession in 1760 in the light of the political perceptions of the 1750s. It also discusses George III's initiative to remove his grandfather's proscription from honours and offices of those deemed Tory.
