I am trying to answer a for and against history source essay question about Henry VII.

'Henry's attempts to override local powers by means of his own servants, his use of spies, his institution of a personal bodyguard as soon as he became king, all point to a misguided policy, which was what he knew best. It would be surprising if local instability and Henry's deep mistrust of the nobles that bred mistrust towards the king had not raised some questions about his suitability to rule, and it is a fact that Henry was troubled by plots and rebellions for much longer than he should have been after the Battle of Stoke'

Adapted from Christine Carpenter, The Wars of the Roses:
Politics and the Constitution of England c1437-1509, 1997
