For instance, in the UK, they think that Oliver Cromwell was a great man, whereas most Irish people would think that he was a terrorist.

Just like lots of Irish think that Patrick Pearse was a cunt.


But in general, the British see Oliver Cromwell as a hero, whilst most Irish people would see him as a terrorist.




The statue of him in pride of place outside the House of Commons, the naming of a main street in London after him, the naming of many pubs and stuff all over the country after him would appear to support this fact.



One man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist.

Wrong again Dan. They weren't provos that attacked Lunny, any more than the Lunny's and the Quinns are pals these days.

For a guy that claims to have studied history in third level and to be employed in the general field you've an amazing misunderstanding of even general details. Funny that
