In 1846, Disraeli made a series of vicious verbal attacks on Sir Robert Peel over the issue of the repeal of the Corn Laws. On 30 January 1847, following Peel's resignation, this cartoon appeared in Punch.
Peel: "Well, my little Man, what are you going to do this Session, eh?"
D---li (the Juvenile). "Why - aw -aw - I've made arrangements - aw - to smash - aw - everybody."
