Oliver Cromwell was named one of the top TEN Britons. He was a murdering loon.

Oliver Cromwell set the seeds for constitutional democracy, introduced the principles of executive accountability and restored the teeth of the legislature.

He opposed the execution of Charles I and was not present at either Drogheda or Wexford, although Ireland was undoubtedly the biggest stain on the reputation of man who undoubtedly deserves to be counted as one of the greatest Britons of the past millennium.
