05612. Anon - Don-Key Lord Mayor 1830

Anon The Don-Key Turned Mayor Or An Ass In The Chair c1830. A donkey with a human face in an Alderman's cloak sits at a table with his feet on a footstool, facing the head & forelegs of a horse. This is probably The Lord Mayor of the City of London, John Key, who served two years in 1830 and 1831, and was frequently characterised as a donkey in a series of caricatures. The horse on the table may well represent King William the IV who came to the throne in 1830 or possibly The Duke of Wellington, Prime Minister at the time. Lord Mayor Key, famously, cancelled a Civic City Diner because of fears of rioting and this caricature appears to be referring to that particular incident for fear of rioting.

NOTE: Quote from Story Of Ireland by A. M. Sullivan: "Mr. Parnell early in the last session of Parliament had introduced a bill for the amelioration of small tenants precluded from the benefits of the Land Act, and in distress through arrears. The bill was defeated, and the prospect before the poorer class of farmers whom it might have saved was wholesale eviction. To combat the horrors implied in that term a distinguished member of the Nationalist party (it is said John Dillon) formulated the famous plan of campaign. In October, 1886, United Ireland published the programme which was laid down for the oppressed tenantry, and it is but just to say they proved loyal to it; and so were, in most cases, saved from being utterly crushed under the tyrannical regime that ensued when the new coalition ministry came into office. The latter, with Lord Salisbury for premier, was composed of true-blue Tories and weak-kneed Liberals who styled themselves Liberal-Unionists" Unquote.
