Grand Remonstrance

Grand Remonstrance, 1641. This lengthy petition was part of Pym's campaign to retain the initiative in his parliamentary struggle against Charles I. It was given added urgency by the news of the Irish catholic revolt. A long indictment of the misdeeds of the reign, attributing them largely to popish advisers, was carried on 18 November by 159 votes to 148. It demanded, on threat of withholding supply, that in future the king should employ such counsellors as Parliament ‘may have cause to confide in’. Charles replied that in the ‘choice of our counsellors … it is the undoubted right of the crown of England to call such persons … as we shall think fit’.
