It was so prodigious a tumult, that I verily thought half the administration would have run away to Harrowgate. The North Briton was ordered to be burned by the hangman at Cheapside, on Saturday last. The Briton became most famous and infamous for issue number 45, which sparked prosecution, seizure, arrest and exile for Wilkes, and forty or so court cases.
It merged with a powerful and growing movement working for political reform, but it was an uneasy alliance, temporarily thrusting middle class and aristocratic reformers and opportunists, elements of the powerful and volatile London mob, together. At its head Wilkes always had his own advancement and reputation as his primary focus…. Later in , Wilkes reprinted the issue, which was again seized by the government. However, before the papers could be burned, the assembled crowd rescued the text, assaulting the hangman. He would return to England, be imprisoned again, stand for election as an MP for Middlesex, several times, and be barred, repeatedly, while mobs fought for him and the government fought to keep him — and them — out… Throughout his career he also had powerful allies among the rich merchant classes and City politicians, and eventually he would rise to command soldiers repressing the Gordon Rioters, and become Lord Mayor of London.
