English Parliament

The Parliament of England was the legislature of the Kingdom of England. In 1066, William of Normandy introduced a feudal system, by which he sought the advice of a council of tenants-in-chief and ecclesiastics before making laws.

The No Campaign have won the Scottish Independence referendum,Alex Salmond and all nationalists have accepted this result.Yes 1,539,920 No 1,914,187. Scotland now expects the Unionists of all parties and UK Parliament to honour it's pledges of more devolution of powers to the Scottish Parliament and Nation.The United Kingdom will never be the same after today England,Wales, and Northern Ireland should also get more powers and if it means an English Parliament so it should be.Scotland may well one day be free but let's pledge today to work to make the UK better for its peoples and nations for us and future generations.Congratulations to the Yes Campaign for fighting such an inspirational campaign which has inspired peoples of all nations who don't have their own states.
Scotland votes to stay in the United Kingdom. Now Parliament needs to work to give local constituencies more power. The debate is already breaking down along party lines. Labour is supporting a more Federalists system that gives more local powers to not just Scotland and Wales but to local cities and constituencies. The Conservatives seem to be wanting an English Parliament and a Scottish Parliament and so on... The Scottish people have put their trust in Great Britain -- I hope party politics can be put aside for a better Scotland and a better Great Britain.

End the West Lothian Question, end the Barnett Formula, and create an English Parliament before the next general election.

In the two-year Scottish referendum campaign, Whitehall and Westminster have been in denial about the prospect of Scotland voting Yes to independence. Suddenly, as the opinion polls show it as a very real prospect, the London-based political establishment is anxiously thinking about the implications. “The consequences, not just for England, but Wales and Northern Ireland, are frankly unimaginable,” one senior Whitehall official said today. This is not an obscure debate about more devolution: some MPs fear the peace process in Northern Ireland, or at least order on the streets, could be at risk, and that there could be new demands for a united Ireland. There would inevitably be calls for a stronger Welsh Assembly, more devolution to the English regions and even an English Parliament. If Scots vote to walk out of the marriage, there is no guarantee of an amicable “velvet divorce”. Alex Salmond could afford to be conciliatory in victory. He would invite a vanquished Alistair Darling to join all-party ...

Interesting tidbits: 1576 - Tycho Brahe given Hveen Island to build Uraniborg Observatory 1701 – After being convicted of piracy and of murdering William Moore, Captain William Kidd is hanged in London. Some modern historians deem his piratical reputation unjust, as there is evidence that Kidd acted only as a privateer. Kidd's fame springs largely from the sensational circumstances of his questioning before the English Parliament and the ensuing trial. His actual depredations on the high seas, whether piratical or not, were both less destructive and less lucrative than those of many other contemporary pirates and privateers. 1785 - Benjamin Franklin announces his invention of bifocals. 1829 – Accordion patent granted to Cyrill Demian in Vienna. Demian's instrument bore little resemblance to modern instruments. It only had a left hand buttonboard, with the right hand simply operating the bellows. One key feature for which Demian sought the patent was the sounding of an entire chord by depressing one ke ...

This act increases the duties on imported sugar and other items such as textiles, coffee, wines and indigo (dye). It doubles the duties on foreign goods reshipped from England to the colonies and also forbids the import of foreign rum and French wines. 1764 - The English Parliament passes a measure to reorganize the American customs system to better enforce British trade laws, which have often been ignored in the past.

There are two Crowns operant in England, one being Queen Elizabeth II. Although extremely wealthy, the Queen functions largely in a ceremonial capacity and serves to deflect attention away from the other Crown, who issues her marching orders through their control of the English Parliament. This other Crown is comprised of a committee of 12 banks headed by the Bank of England (House of Rothschild). They rule the world from the 677-acre, independent sovereign state know as The City of London, or simply 'The City.' The City is not a part of England, just as Washington, D.C. is not a part of the USA. The City is referred to as the wealthiest square mile on earth and is presided over by a Lord Mayor who is appointed annually. When the Queen wishes to conduct business within the City, she is met by the Lord Mayor at Temple (Templar) Bar where she requests permission to enter this private, sovereign state. She then proceeds into the City walking several paces behind the Mayor. Her entourage may not be clothed in ...

Did you know? The King wants your pee! In 1626 King Charles I of England passed the first urine laws, a set of laws mandating that English citizens collect their urine in whatever handy receptacle was available. Citizens all over the kingdom peed into bottles and would place them on their doorsteps the next morning. Why was it that the king wanted his citizens pee so badly? Among the many chemicals that make up urine is the precious element potassium, needed to create saltpeter (potassium nitrate) for the production of gunpowder. At the time potassium nitrate could only be found in decaying plant matter and human urine. So the citizens of England would pee in jugs, the jugs would be collected by workers called “petermen”, and the urine would be distilled for its important chemicals producing gunpowder for the kings army. In 1642 the English Parliament rebelled against King Charles I, signalling the beginning of the English Civil War. In order to defeat the “roundheads” as the Parliamentarian ...
Obama is King Leopold II Revisited In Areopagitica , John Milton wrote : " Let truth and falsehood grapple : who knew the truth , put the worse in a free and open encounter" He wrote it in 1644 or as an appeal to the English Parliament to end a political order and tried to bring the whole issue under control by official government censors ( authors submit their work for approval before having it published ) . It is a concise yet controversial parallel to Areopagiticus Isocrates and the story of the Apostle Paul in Athens from Acts 17 : 18-34 . The first refers to the " degradation of the judges of the Court of the Areopagus , the highest court in Greece . " However , one can also apply this to political tyranny axiologically as well, especially when it comes to facts in the light of political action and mandate. Over the past year , the Obama administration has aggressively increased its foot print militarily in Africa . Under the pretext of fighting for fair neoliberalim to defeat tyranny and kleptocrati ...

Today's Highlight in History: On Jan. 31, 1944, during World War II, U.S. forces began a successful invasion of Kwajalein Atoll and other parts of the Japanese-held Marshall Islands. On this date: In 1606, Guy Fawkes, convicted of treason for his part in the "Gunpowder Plot" against the English Parliament and King James I, was executed. In 1863, during the Civil War, the First South Carolina Volunteers, an all-black Union regiment composed of former slaves, was mustered into federal service at Beaufort, S.C. In 1865, Gen. Robert E. Lee was named general-in-chief of all the Confederate armies. In 1917, during World War I, Germany served notice it was beginning a policy of unrestricted submarine warfare. In 1929, revolutionary Leon Trotsky and his family were expelled from the Soviet Union. In 1934, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Gold Reserve Act. In 1958, the United States entered the Space Age with its first successful launch of a satellite into orbit, Explorer I. In 1961, NASA launched Ham th ...
Mini-Series on the Declaration of Independence. After years of abuse and unfair taxation, e.g. Coercive Acts, Stamp Act, the colonies decided they had had enough. They were not satisfied with the rule of George III and were moving toward a break with the King and the English Parliament. They were, in fact, on the verge of a discovery that would turn the course of history in a new direction, a discovery that is still reverberating among us. This discovery was nothing less than the principle of human equality. The catalyst for this monumental movement was the publishing of Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" in January 1776. It was widely read in the colonies. Why? Because it said what Americans were waiting to hear - that if they hoped to enjoy freedom under George III, they were fooling themselves. The King was the cause of their troubles. As we know, this all led to the Declaration of Independence in July 1776. The Declaration of Independence is the first formal American document. It is not judicially e ...

English Civil War of 1642: mainly a conflict between who should have the power, the king or parliament.
Historical Events, this day January 27 In 1606, the trial of Guy Fawkes began. In 1606, the surviving conspirators in the Gunpowder Treason plot to blow up the English Parliament and the king of England on Nov. 5, 1605, were convicted. (They were executed four days later.) In 1785, the first public university in the United States was founded as the University of Georgia. In 1880, Thomas Edison was granted a patent for an electric incandescent lamp. In 1888, The National Geographic Society was founded in Washington.

When Will Our Shackles Be Broken? By Femi Fani-Kayode On the 20th April 1653, Oliver Cromwell, who was the Lord Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland and the greatest statesman and revolutionary that England ever knew, stormed the English “Rump Parliament’’ at Westminster and courageously pronounced the following words after which he sacked Parliament and boldly took power. He said: “It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money. Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst yo ...

Edmund Burke in English Parliament, April 19, 1774. Sadly, the same is just as true of today's federal government. "Parliament is every day and everywhere losing (I feel it with sorrow, I utter it with reluctance) that reverential affection, which so endearing a name of authority ought ever to carry with it; that you are obeyed solely from respect to the bayonet.”
One of my only goals in life is to marry an English Man who has a title and lots of land. Particularly a member of Parliament or a PM.

February 20, 1855 Joseph Hume, a member of English Parliament who adopted Universalist views, died. He was the leader of the Radical Party for thirty years, taking special interest in financial oversight of both public and private enterprises. February 21, 1612 Bartholomew Legate, a cloth merchant of Essex, England, having been convicted of heresy for advocating Unitarian beliefs, was burned to death before a large crowd. He had not been granted a legal trial but had defended his Unitarian views in a series of private conversations with King James I, who condemned him to death.
STORY OF VOTING SYSTEM Its history dates back to the ancient world of Greece, whr Cleisthenes inttroduced one of the earliest forms of democracy in 508 B.C, whn voters used broken pots called "ostraka" to exile a politician. Later on Roman Empire passed a law to allow secret voting. Long before decisions were made by using coloured balls. However,the word "ballot" derived from Italian "ballota" which means 'ballot' traces its origin to the coloured balls used by the Romans. Most interestingly from13th to19th Century various electoral systems were tried by the European world & United States. The United States used paper ballot in 1629,while secret voting was introduced in France in1852 & Italy in 1859. By 1872 english parliament passed a bill on secret voting in all parliamentary elections. In connection to these historical facts, wish u all a very meaninful "NATIONAL VOTERS DAY"
Billy Bragg: An English parliament would still be dominated by the City's economic imperatives, so a regional solution is required
January 20th 1265 - 1st English Parliament called into session by Earl of Leicester Simon de Montfort, 6th Earl of Leicester (1208? – 4 August 1265), also called Simon de Munford and sometimes referred to as Simon VI de Montfort to distinguish him from other Simons de Montfort, was a French nobleman who inherited the title and estates of the earldom of Leicester in England. He led the rebellion against King Henry III of England during the Second Barons' War of 1263–4, and subsequently became de facto ruler of England. During his rule, de Montfort called two famous parliaments. The first stripped the king of unlimited authority, the second included ordinary citizens from the towns. For this reason, Montfort is regarded today as one of the progenitors of modern parliamentary democracy. After a rule of just over a year, Montfort was killed by forces loyal to the king in the Battle of Evesham. De Montfort was a younger son of Simon de Montfort, a French nobleman and crusader, and Alix de Montmorency. His ...

“Our forefathers knew better than to celebrate this pagan festival called Christmas,” Rives stated. “It was outlawed in New England from 1649 to 1658, and it was condemned for its pagan roots by the Puritans, the Methodists, the Quakers, the Amish, Presbyterians and Baptists. It was later made an illegal holiday in 1856.” In the 1640’s, the English Parliament discussed enacting a ban on Christmas because they believed that it was directly contrary to Christianity. One of the main reasons that the parliament and the Puritans in the nation believed this was because the holiday was a mixture of “pagan revelry” and Catholic mandates. Being strongly against the ways of Catholicism, many Puritans forbade the attendance of mass in England, from which the name Christmas was derived. In 1647, parliament not only passed a law banning Christmas, but also Easter, Whitsun and all of the special “saints” days instituted by the Catholic church. When the Puritans came to America, they did the same. On M ...
