@Sisu I think it was more of a hands-off approach that England had to the Thirteen Colonies. England was happy to live and let live, since administering far-away colonies directly in the age of sail was a pain, but they did this for so long that when they finally put their foot down it was considered a shock. Also, again, the flip side to not paying taxes in the colonies is not being represented.
