Abstract:
The Duke of Portland, the new prime minister, leans over the gate to "Portland Place" handing down to Fox and North their reward in the form of an enormous bunch of grapes. Fox grasps the whole bunch taking a bite out of it while North, standing on his tiptoes with his arms wide open, cannot reach it. (In the verses below the title, as in other satires on the Coalition, North is the badger.)
