24. MONSTROUS CRAWS AT A NEW COALITION FEAST.
May 29th, 1787.

THE QUEEN. PRINCE OF WALES. GEORGE III.

On the Supplies, the great sums required for the Privy Purse, and the demand for money to pay the debts of the Prince of Wales, whose affairs were at this moment in great embarrassment. The King and Queen were always accused popularly of devouring the money of the nation with great greediness.

7166 MONSTROUS CRAWS, AT A NEW COALITION FEAST.
Pubd May 29th 1787, by S.W. Fores, Piccadilly.

The King, Queen, and Prince of Wales, seated round a bowl of guineas, ladle coins into their mouths with both hands. The King (r.) and Queen (l.), T.Q.L. figures, sit facing each other, supporting on their knees the bowl, which is inscribed John Bull’s Blood. The Queen is grotesquely caricatured as a lean and avaricious hag, eagerly cramming the contents of two ladles into her mouth; the King is dressed as an old woman. The Prince (centre), scarcely caricatured, sits full-face behind the bowl, wearing a fool’s cap trimmed with three ostrich feathers. All three have throats terminating in long pelicanlike pouches; that of the Prince is empty, the other two are full. The King’s ladles are much larger than those of his wife and son. The Prince’s ladles are inscribed £1oooo p’ An and £6oooo p’ An. They are seated outside the gate of the Treasury, represented as usual by a spiked gate across a stone archway, but the gate is open behind the head of the Prince.

A satire on the quasi-reconciliation between the Prince and his parents which took place when Pitt recommended to Parliament a vote of £161,ooo to pay the Prince’s debts, £20,000 for completing Carlton House, and an increase of £1o,ooo to his annual income of £5o,ooo and the revenues of the Duchy of Cornwall …

Three persons with ‘craws’ (apparently goitres) were exhibited in London as ‘Wild-born human beings’ … and the ‘monstrous craws’ were often mentioned …

If you don’t like the comparison to the Royals today, do some research into how much they are costing us to keep them as our Australian Royals..  Many new comers hate the flag because it has that British Mini Flag in the Corner.

That Mob joined with the European Common Market & now have gone to Euro *  which is in dire trouble.                     What can you do but get out of this Babylon!
