Interesting article in todays Trib where a new book traces serious thinking about a republic back to Cromwell. It also banishes the myth of the 3000 catholics massacred in Drogheda by the aforesaid. Aparently it was a protestant town and there weren't 3000 papists around !! Cromwell called the royalist protestants catholics to make the massacre more palatable to the English !! Well well .
