Hand-coloured etching. Plate 266 x 362mm (10½ x 14¼"), with very large margins. Repaired tears in margins.
Satire on the election after Sir Robert Peel resigned his Oxford University seat during Catholic Emancipation (as he had stood on a platform of opposition to Emancipation and had since changed his position). Peel was nominated for re-election but was defeated by Sir R.H. Inglis. Here Inglis is shown as an obese Oxford don in the centre, charming a yokel John Bull and holding a peeled orange inscribed 'Inglis', from which he discards the 'Peel' which is about to fall into a slough inscribed 'Westbury Close Sink of Iniquity / Impurity of Elect—Bribery—Corruption'. In this bog can be seen the head and shoulders of Sir Manasseh Masseh Lopes, who says 'if you will let me out there's plenty of room for your peel'. Following Peel's defeat by Inglis, the government had to ask Lopes to vacate his pocket borough at Westbury in Peel's favour (Lopes resigned for an undisclosed sum).
