Those "Bolshie Barons" at Runnymede were demanding that John respect their ancient rights under the Common Law,and the rights of the City, too. Common Law is itself a product of the judges appointed by English Kings going back to Alfred the Great. What Parliaments and, cough, cough, Congresses have done has been to violate those rights, quite systematically, and, up to now, with relative impunity. There is currently an effort to reverse that trend. We shall see.

British values. Maybe English values. I tell people my kin came over from England. Not Britain, nor the UK. We have allowed Congresses and Parliaments to bribe us with our own money.
