Paine has long been placed, alongside Richard Price and Joseph Priesdey, in a tradition of English deist revolutionary thought (Palmer, 1959; Good win, 1979; Clark, 1985). None of the three was, however, an advocate of violent insurrections, while Price and Priesdey are better regarded as children of the cosmopolitan Enlightenment.

By 1812, Grenville was referring to ministerialists as ‘the party of the Tories, & of the old Court, & High Church’. This was qualified by the statement that, in their blind support for crown and church, the said persons were no true heirs of Pitt, but Grenville’s use of the term ‘T ory’ suggests that some intellectual cross-fertilisation had been taking place in Opposition ranks (BL Add 41853, ff.
