Less a Thomas Cromwell, more a Robespierre 22:54 - May 23 with 806 viewsYou_Bloo_Right

From Wikii:

Robespierre was eventually undone by his obsession with the vision of an ideal republic and his indifference to the human costs of installing it, which turned both members of the Convention and the French public against him.
The Terror ended when he and fifty of his allies were arrested in the town hall on 9 Thermidor and executed the day after.

I do get the impression he is that kind of single-minded, idealist fanatic.

or a Malcolm Tucker. And then we could turn this into another 'change one letter' thread.

The only thing I know is that I might be wrong about everything else.

Whilst we are talking of spin, consider a different type of spinning:

Hopefully underneath all this there are hard working journalists still trying to follow the money.

Have you ever read Mark Steel's 'Vive La Revoltion' Guffers?

It's a very funny, surprisingly well-researched(but not without its errors - he is a comedian by trade after all and certainly not without's biases) book about the French revolution. He's particularly funny talking about Robespierre and Danton.
