Putin and Cromwell


Worrying about Russia feels like Cromwell fighting Spain when France was the threat.

in 1943 Churchill suddenly said to Macmillan late one night: 

'Cromwell was a great man, wasn't he?' 'Yes, sir, a very great man.' 'Ah, but he made one terrible mistake. Obsessed in his youth by fear of the power of Spain, he failed to observe the rise of France.'
After posting this, I discover Putin has said,
Cromwell was just as much of a bloody dictator, as was Stalin.

  1. No I think it's the other way around, you and too many others focus on immigration and the demographic time bomb while Putin is the serious threat.
