OK. BBC has been running a poll to decide the 'Worst Briton' over the last 1000 years. Results suprised me a bit. Ol' Jack the Ripper comes in a stonking first place followed by .......Thomas a Becket then Eadric Streona ?!?! Link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4663280.stm Surely there have been better examples of evil manifestations in recent years, Fred West, Denis Nielsen, Brady, Crippen etc etc. This one rather suprised me. So who, then is your nomination as the worst Briton of the last 1000 years?
