Let’s look at this Cruikshank cartoon from 1819.
This cartoon by caricaturist and illustrator George Cruikshank warned of the threat of political reform to British institutions such as the monarchy, sports and the arts. One month later, on 16 August 1819 in Manchester, 60,000 people who were peacefully protesting for political reform were met with violence from the authorities at an event known as the Peterloo Massacre.
