We celebrate the meaningless St George's Day, and completely ignore the 416th birthday of one of the greatest Englishmen who ever lived, and who overthrew a heinous tyranny, granting the people of this country their liberties.
(Ignore the title, I meant 416th. His 400th birthday was in 1999, when I was born).
He was a traitor, a religious fundamentalist and a cold-blooded butcher of thousands.
I'm a republican and even I prefer Charles II
Isn't he the poster boy for being worse than the people you overthrow?
Cool guy, too bad about the religious dogma.
