   Magna CartaKing JohnEnglish Common Law

Confusingly, after John gave his seal to the Magna Carta, he wrote to the pope claiming he had signed under duress. To this the pope absolved John of any difficulties arising from it, but king John died of dysentery soon after, and maybe hypothetically, with it went Rome's chance of reengineering the document.

The Magna Carta was now enshrined in English Law, and when Henry III, John's son aged just nine took over, one of England's most respected figures entered the fray. William Marshall, the new kings regent, would stand for no messing from the French. Under Henry's reign, with Marshall's assistance - who incidentally

 

managed to beat back the invading armies from France - the Magna Carta was reissued in law. With it the precedence was established for future revision.

The Magna Carta was now recognized, likely with reluctance by Rome, as a firm charter in English law. Its basis was scriptural. It was, and still is the foundation of our English Common Law, a law holding rulers accountable for their actions, and providing for the people a moral basis upon which the English nation was built.

          Church of England split with Rome
Dissolution of the monasteries in England took place between 1536-40. Over 800 monasteries were closed during the reformation, but is it clear why? Officially we are told the pope would not grant king Henry VIII a divorce. However, there are other matters to consider; such as vatican ideas on doctrine, and widespread idolatry within the Romish system. Even now it would seem Catholicism venerates the mother before Jesus. Then as now perhaps just one more reason why England chose to break away.
 
I am ready, (Becket heroically cries) to die for my Lord,
that in my blood the Church may obtain liberty and peace.

              Thomas Becket
Mystery exists between Becket (12th century Archbishop of Canterbury) and Henry II. Their public argument regarding the administration of justice would later force Becket into exile, lead to his brutal murder; and likely shape the inspiration of those helping to compose Magna Carta.

Current Political Landscape
A brief overview of modern-day map of power.
   
Formally the League of Nations, the United Nations was formed in 1945.
It assumes authority on family values and the concept of right and wrong. The Unites States of America only gives Israel
$8m a day to assist them in the Middle East. Over the years, Westminster’s politicians have
gained a well deserved reputation regarding
their promises prior to being elected. Established sometime in the mid Twentieth Century,
the European Union is un-audited bureaucracy. Liberal
values and homogeneity remain firm policy directives. Vatican tradition stretches back over three millennia.
Present day interests range from astronomy to banking. Established in 1948, Israel works diligently
with the United Nations on such issues
as trying to create a world court. Queen Elizabeth I of England.
