/* The essence of original Magna Carta */
#All judges, constables, sheriffs and bailiffs had to actually have knowledge of the law;
#Justice could not be sold, denied or delayed;
-#Taxes could only be levied and assessed with the consent of the governed.
Further clauses in Magna Carta confirmed the “ancient liberties” of the City of London and the freedom and independence of the Church of England, others - clarified inheritance and use of the forests and fishing rights. An interesting fact is that three of these clauses remain in force in current UK law and can be found in the current UK Statute Law Database. These clauses guarantee the freedom the Church, the right to a due process and the “ancient liberties” of London.<ref>Magna Carta - Rights still in force today: http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Magna_Carta</ref>
