About This Law:
This is a simple safeguard put in place to protect our freedoms. Our ancestors knew there could be a problem one day if the crown became unjust, or turned into some sort of dictatorship, or parliament was acting against the people, or was full of corruption, or was not allowing the crown to keep its oath.
So in article 61 of the Magna Carta it was written that if this ever happened you could petition the crown to sort out the crown’s or parliament’s problem, the crown had 40 days to fix it or dissolve parliament.
If, after 40 days, nothing was fixed the petitioner could go into rebellion against the crown and parliament under the full protection of our Constitutional Law until the problem was resolved.
