Description: Sir Francis Burdett, 5th Baronet (25 January 1770 – 23 January 1844) was an English reformist politician. As an M.P. he frequently attacked abuses, agitated for reform and in 1810 came sharply into collision with the House of Commons. "Old Glory" as he was nicknamed by fellow conservatives was imprisoned a number of times for his outspoken reformist views.
