Magna Carta article 61

Women business owner stood in defiance telling the Police why her business should not be closed due Covid 19 ( Liverpool )

So before you think you can apply this Law

I thought I’d check this one out !

Article 61 of Magna Carta allows for lawful dissent and rebellion. It also means that businesses don’t have to close under Covid-19 regulations.

Verdict is

This is all incorrect. Clause 61 of the 1215 Magna Carta set out rules for 25 specific barons. It did not allow the general population to rebel, and it was also removed from subsequent versions of the document. Sorry to be the bearer of my findings Conveniently Article 61 is no longer applicable.

Who removed it I wonder and did someone do so due to the fact it did not fit in with the current Government ruling in regards to non essential businesses are to remain closed until further notice !
