John Bull

National personification of Great Britain in journalism, lithography, caricature, and print-making. Invented by Sir John Arbuthnot in 1712.

King Dick (as John Bull): Jonathan, me boy! I'm just telling you gently in a friendly sort of way to stop it. These Trusts and Combines must be put down, and I'm the man to do it. As long as you act fair and square with the Motherland you can rely on Dick Seddon; but the moment you come the underhand on us I'll resent it in a way that will never be forgotten. From King Dick Abroad. Dealing with American Trusts and Combines
