Originally allied with Walpole, Pulteney gradually became alienated from him and in 1725 began a journalistic war against him through the columns of ‘The Craftsman’, finally joining with Sir William Wyndham in forming a new party of malcontent Whigs called “The Patriots”. His power as an orator led Walpole to observe that he feared Pulteney’s tongue more than another man’s sword.
