Answer:
1760, after the death of his grandfather; he was an active and responsible ruler, he removed the long-standing and realitvely stable coalition of Whigs ( who had under Pitt and others governed, the empire for much of the century) In their place he created a new coalition of his own through patronage and bribes and gained uneasy control of Parliament.This and his personality resulted in the instability and the intransigence of the British government during the critical years.
