The ongoing campaign was slow and difficult and, often produced accusations of hypocrisy because Wilberforce as a member of the establishment and was supportive of repressive measures following the infamous Peterloo massacre – where protesting workers had been shot.
The government were very fearful of a revolution – which had happened in the US and then Paris – many thought London would be next. The following is a conversation between Clarkson and Wilberforce. Many believed that compassion should begin at home. In this song Clarkson is arguing for revolution, but Wilberforce will have none of it.


If you’re an advocate for change
Then help the working man
Workers are just slaves
I’m doing what I can
You didn’t denounce Peterloo
You’re supported the repression
Is this really your view?
We fear revolution
Let’s tear the system down
No – stay Loyal To The Crown
Let’s bring it to the ground
No – stay Loyal To The Crown
Let’s turn it all around
No – stay Loyal To The Crown.
I remain Loyal To The Crown
The country is divided, Civil War could soon begin , Why are you so misguided
I’ll fight it from within
What about your countrymen
Why can’t you help them more
With their dire situation
We need the rule of law
I’m not a radical, Believe in what is possible
Change has to be gradual, I’m not fanatical
And I am practical, change has to be gradual
Chorus; We’ll achieve nothing unless we stay Loyal To The Crown
