In response to the spread of this extra-parliamentary reform movement, the wide dissemination of Paine’s work, and the proliferation of reforming handbills, chap-books, poems, songs, and squibs being pumped out by radical presses both in London and in the provinces, the government issued a Royal Proclamation Against Seditious Writings and Publications in May 1792 and inaugurated a prosecution for libel against Paine for Rights of Man: Part the Second. But while several hundred county and borough meetings sent in loyal addresses to the king through the summer of 1792, the government’s confidence was not helped by a spate of food *riots, or by the fierce rhetoric which peppered the societies’ correspondence with France, expressing support and admiration for their revolution and sometimes the wish to emulate it.

The prominence of the militia in the protests of 1795 ought also to be a reminder that militarization and loyalty did not necessarily go hand in hand. During the next food crisis, in 1800, numerous volunteers took the side of the populace they were meant to control, though two years earlier they had enlisted under their officers for the defence of the country. ’ Clearly, national defence patriotism coexisted with other loyalties, invariably superseding these when the threat of invasion was very real but at other times having to accommodate and even submit to them.

Burke characterized the choice in stark terms: either to accept the status quo, or to jeopardize the Englishman’s liberties, his culture, and his civilization.
