Following the assassingation of Spencer Perceval in May 1812, the administration of Lord Liverpool was formed in a political crisis. Liverpool was the Prince Regent's fifth choice of man to form a ministry and it was not expected that Liverpool's premiership would last long. During the period 1812-22, it could be said that England suffered more, economically, socially and politically, than during the French Wars. Consequently there were a number of manifestations of discontent and distress. There was opposition to the government's policies from both inside and outside parliament.
