From 1485 to 1495 Henry attainted eight people who had committed crimes against the Crown. Thomas Howard was an example of this who lost the title of Duke of Norfolk and his family land after Bosworth. However the Acts of Attainder were reserved at times, he was reinstated as Earl of Surrey in 1489 to help calm an uprising in Northumberland. This gave Henry good control and power over any powerful nobles, being able to suppress them or use them to his advantage. Lastly his Kingship was strengthened through threats of magnates.
Furthermore the Lords began overusing the courts as a method of increasing their wealth this meant that the people became increasingly frustrated and because the Lords had the respect of the King the commoners could have rebelled against the English monarchy. In Wales the courts were committing perjury and guilty of accepting many bribes which meant even if the criminals were court it was unlikely they would be brought to justice. The Acts of Union showed the Marcher Lords that they were responsible for the behaviour of their citizenship and this meant that the King’s law was enforced thoroughly throughout Wales. The Acts also served as a method of establishing a single unified system of government for England and Wales, the Council of Wales was given its own administrative powers. The Acts of Union also meant that welsh people were able to seek office and become M.P’s in London if they paid and could speak English to a certain level.
The court of the Star Chamber was created by Wolsey to show justice to all. It was a criminal court and it paved the way for ordinary courts. The earl of Northumberland and Sir William Balmer being some of its victims. Wolsey wanted the benefits of the Star Chamber for everyone however this of course came at a price with the court being overloaded with cases as everyone tries to get justice. However having set up the court of the star chamber Wolsey didn’t consolidate it in the 1520s as he was again distracted by other concerns such as the “great matter”, war and also the sheer amount of other work Wolsey did in his 20 hour day.
One problem of the model relates to the concept of the central executive. Evidence not supporting this is the study of EVR- he had a cerebral tumour removed. Consequently he had poor decision making which suggests that the central executive wasn’t intact. On the contrary, he performed well on tests requiring reasoning indicating that the central executive was still intact. This infers that the central executive is unsatisfactory because it doesn’t explain anything as it's probably more complicated than represented in the WMM.
To what extent was Philip II an absolute monarch One could argue that Philip II was an absolute monarch as he was the King, not only that but the most powerful King in Europe as he had control of parts in South America such as Mexico and also parts in Italy, Sicilia and the Netherlands and for a short time England. As a King it meant he had the ‘divine right’, which meant that he had the right to rule from God and were accountable only to God. As a King he had the power to create war and peace, which he did against Italy in 1556. Furthermore he was in charge of an immense military power. The Spanish Armada in 1588 alone had the size of 160 ships and he was able to push back the Ottoman Empire under Suleiman the Magnificent, ending their threat in the Mediterranean in 1585.
He did this by evading his taxes that went to funding the recently entered conflict with Mexico as well as funding a government that supported slavery. Thoreau’s words that he spoke that night in jail were so powerful and moving that they were eventually published into an essay that was ultimately one of the biggest factors and influences on two of the greatest civil rights activists ever; Martin Luther King Jr. and Mohandas Gandhi. Gandhi quoted Thoreau in his writing Indian Opinion stating that there was much importance connected to his writings and that his thoughts were very unique and original. This eventually led to Gandhi’s campaign of non-cooperation with the British government that ruled them. Boycotts were put on British products, and after being release from jail Gandhi
Attempting to get the public’s attention on this matter to oppression by the upper class, they addressed numerous issues (Doc. A). This shows that they have used the Declaration of Independence to make their own “Declaration”. In fact, it evidently was described as prideful providing a long list of abuses and expressing the idea that the working class is suffering damage. The purpose of this document is to have a say in protecting their right to equal economic opportunity.

Although there is overwhelming evidence to say that the police did their best there are still two sides to the argument. Some say the police didn’t perform to their best abilities due to the fact that in certain circumstances they failed to gain sufficient and reliable evidence. The fact that the streets were unlit and pea
These beliefs became heavily challenged in congress because they made the criminal justice system responsible for turning criminals into law abiding citizens. During the 1970’s indeterminate period the emphasis was rehabilitation, community treatment, diversion, reintegration, and education and employment programs (Mackenzie, D.
