Today in 1215, John I of England put the Royal Seal onto the Magna Carta, acknowledging that he was not the beginning and the end of every national discussion. He was helped to this realization by a group of angry, armed Barons. Very Big Deal in the history of government, though neither side kept to the agreement.
John was not trusted nor liked by his people. But! it allows YIR to quote from A.A. Milne’s, Now We Are Six:
King John was not a good man —
He had his little ways.
And sometimes no one spoke to him
For days and days and days.
Any opportunity to quote from A.A. Milne is an opportunity to be seized.
