The Cato Street conspiracy turns 200

Recommended Posts

"Two hundred years ago, on 23 February 1820, a new sort of terrorism was foiled when police raided a backstreet stable loft in central London and caught men preparing to assassinate the entire British cabinet.

"The so-called Cato Street conspiracy has echoes in more modern outrages. At the time it terrified ministers in Lord Liverpool’s Tory cabinet. But the overwhelming likelihood is that the real conspiracy was provoked and inspired by a spy in the pay of the government itself."

MI5 / MI6 would have squashed the plotters back in the day , so the narrative of 2020 remains the same . Interesting Guardian article nonetheless, Peterloo is well known to anyone  who takes an interest in UK history .
