John Bull, baited by the dogs of excise

John Bull, baited by the dogs of excise. A British satire on efforts by William Pitt, George Rose, and some members of Parliament to impose new Excise duties on tobacco (cf. Tobacco Excise Bill). The additional tax burden on British citizens is implied by the image of a bull, muzzled and blindfolded, with legs chained to a stump, being harassed by dogs (depicted with heads of members of Parliament). Edward Thurlow, also shown as a dog, registers his opposition to these New Excise Fetters for John Bull by urinating on tobacco leaves. Among the members of Parliament depicted are: William Wyndam Grenville, Henry Dundas, Charles Lennox Richmond, Charles Jenkinson, Richard Pepper Arden, Sir Charles Pratt Camden, and possibly Francis Osborne Carmarthen. Date 1790 April 9th. John Bull, baited by the dogs of excise. A British satire on efforts by William Pitt, George Rose, and some members of Parliament to impose new Excise duties on tobacco (cf.
