About this work
The nob of the stick that Melbourne aims bears the head of Shiel, appointed Vice President of the Board of Trade. Advising him is Lord John Russell. Queen Victoria hidden by her bonnet and Prince Albert spectate. The title of the print is derived from Melbourne's comment on the occasion of the introduction into the House of Lords a bill relating to the Church of Ireland, that it would be "a heavy blow and great discouragement to protestantism in Ireland".
