Charles II's fourth Parliament meets, but is immediately prorogued
over the Exclusion Bill, and does not meet again for a year. After
this, Shaftesbury is dismissed, William Temple, Essex and Halifax
resign and this group is replaced by the 'Chits', or 'Tory'
ministry of Godolphin, Hyde and Sunderland. This marks the first
use of the terms Tory and Whig to describe the two parties, a
labelling which was to persist until the mid-nineteenth century.
