Question and answer
What kind of representation did the colonists want in Parliament? A. virtual representation B. actual representation C. honorary representation D. monarchial representation
Colonists desired to uphold their rights (at the time) as Englishmen by protesting the Stamp Act. This included burning stamps, refusal to use them, protests and intimidation of tax distributors. [ [ Their influence was enough to have the act rewritten - regretfully making the act into law. They wanted actual representation and the closes they got was Benjamin Franklin who was mainly
representing Pensylvania. George Granville claimed they had virtual representation but they wanted actual representation. There was not even any virtual representation worth noting. ]
