Pax Britannica: A History of the British Empire show

Summary: After signing a treaty with the king, the Covenanters find it wasn't worth the paper it was written on. The General Assembly meets once more, but the Parliament of Scotland is held up in procedure for weeks, before being prorogued. Aware of the danger of foreign intervention, the Covenanters continue their diplomatic offensive with fantastic results.
