John Wilkes (1725-1797) was a famous radical politician, Member of Parliament and Fellow of the Royal Society. He also issued a weekly publication called The North Briton, a satire on the newspaper, The Briton, published by the Prime Minister, the Scottish Earl of Bute and an ironical reference to Scotland. At the end of the Seven Years' War in 1763, he along with many others opposed what they considered to be over-generous peace terms granted to the defeated enemy, France, in the Treaty of Paris. When the young King George III made a speech praising the Treaty, Wilkes, in issue number 45 of The North Briton, attacked the speech which he recognised as having been written by Bute. The King, feeling personally insulted, was encouraged to issue general warrants (warrants in which the name of the accused is not specified) for the arrest of Wilkes and 48 others on a charge of seditious libel. At the trial, the Lord Chief Justice ruled that as an MP Wilkes was protected by Parliamentary privilege from arrest on a charge of libel. Crowds chanted "Wilkes, Liberty and the Number 45".
