King James was unliked mainly because he was a Catholic, so a plot began to remove him from the throne. It worked and he fled political persecution.
Hey so we decided that we don't really like your latest law, so we are undoing it.
Parliament declared that when James left and fled to Kent, he had given up the throne.
hey honey I really want a new summer home
Hey good idea! Scribe, issue a tax to everyone
Mary, the Protestant daughter of King James, and her husband William accepted the throne as joint sovereigns, along with the English Bill of Rights, which greatly limited their power.
you are under arrest for loitering and I'm going to make you my slave for the next three weeks
With the English Bill of Rights, laws passed by Parliament could not be removed by the ruler(s); Parliament had primary lawmaking power.
haha you can't do that anymore
Also with the Bill of Rights, kings could not impose taxes on people without the tax without Parliament approving it first. This is where the idea of no taxation without representation was put into effect.
haha you can't do that either unless we say you can
The Bill of Rights gave many new rights to citizens. There could be no cruel or unusual punishments, not more bail demanded than was deemed reasonable, and no unreasonable fines. Therefore, it was a crucial document that gave power from the sovereign to Parliament and more rights to the people.
