Returning power to the 99% …

The Outcome

Unfortunately Magna Carta was not an overnight success in curbing John’s abuses, as he chose to ignore much of its contents up until his death a year later. However, his successor Henry III agreed the Charter’s place in Society in 1225 and this was granted in perpetuity in 1237. For the next 600 years this famous Charter determined the manner in which those we give our power to governed Society, by defining and maintaining the rights and freedoms of the people.

This Charter remained intact until 1829 when clause 26 was repealed. With this action a precedent was created, and over the next 140 years the majority of the Charter was repealed, leaving just 3 clauses remaining after 1969, and thereby re-empowering the 1%.
