Moreover, as Prince of Wales, Frederick owned a large part of the county of Cornwall and consequently controlled numerous rotten boroughs. In the election the Cornish constituencies had returned 32 pro-government MPs to Parliament; but at the next general election inwhen Prince Frederick used his electoral influence against Walpole, only 17 pro-government candidates were returned by this county.
Walpole lost another important ally to the opposition, John, duke of Argyll. Argyll was a member of the Cabinet, the most important Whig landowner in Scotland, and head of Clan Campbell. But by the election he had defected to the Opposition, and the electoral repercussions were serious.
On this occasion Scottish constituencies Disraeli s support for reform was motivated elected 17 pro-government MPs. By he was in his 60s and had dominated politics for 15 years.
Some ambitious Whigs resented his prolonged monopoly on power; others anticipated his retirement or death and judged it prudent to distance themselves from his administration. Admiral Edward Vernon became a popular and Opposition hero when he captured the Spanish settlement of Portobelo in what is now Panama in November But his victory was followed by several defeats, and Britain soon became embroiled in a wider European conflict, the War of the Austrian Succession.
Walpole survived the general election ofbut with a greatly reduced majority.
His political doom was sealed in the fall of that year when the Tory and Whig sectors of the Opposition managed finally to agree on a strategy to defeat him. Walpole eventually resigned from his offices in early Although monarchs retained the rights to choose their own ministers, they could no longer retain a chief minister who was unable to command a majority of votes in the House of Commons.
If they wanted to remain in office, chief ministers now needed to possess parliamentary as well as royal support. Its Tory sector some MPs strong had expected that a new administration would be formed in which some of their leaders would be given state office.
They hoped that the proscription of their party, implemented afterwould be reversed and that various changes in domestic and foreign policy would be made. But now that Walpole was out of the picture many of their Patriot Whig allies wanted nothing more to do with Tories or Tory measures.
Six other Patriot Whigs accepted government office, including John, Baron Carteret later earl of Granvillewho became the new secretary of state. Spencer Compton, now earl of Wilmingtonbecame the new first lord of the treasury and nominal head of the government.
The Tories, as well as many people outside Parliamenthad expected the fall of Walpole to result in a revolution in government and society, but this did not occur. Instead, all that had happened was a reshuffling of state employment among patrician Whigs, which caused widespread disillusionment and anger.

In June George commanded his British and Hanoverian troops at the Battle of Dettingen the last battle in which a British monarch commandeddefeating the opposing French forces.
But the victory was not followed up and aroused little patriotic enthusiasm in Britain. Instead, accusations that the king and Carteret were sacrificing British interests to Hanoverian priorities were openly expressed in Parliament and in the press.

It hoped that such an invasion would win support from the masses and from the Tory sector of the landed class.
