Henry Hunt, known as "Orator Hunt" for his 1816 Spa Fields speeches in favor of universal suffrage and Parliamentary reform, was a radical British politician. An important influence on the Chartist movement and a pioneer of mass politics, Hunt was imprisoned for more than two years after the Peterloo Massacre in 1819. After his release, he began several business enterprises, including a shoe-blacking manufacture, in an attempt to restore his financial security. He opposed the 1832 Reform Bill as insufficiently democratic, which cost him his seat in Parliament, and died of a stroke in 1835.
