Greatest historical error

The Times comment section has asked contributors what they think was the greatest error in British history. I agree with Mick Hume: the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. There are almost too many reasons to list... but we might have to wait for King Charles III before present day Liberal monarchists understand, and in that there would be a certain symmetry.

Fighting WWI. That brought the world Lenin. No Lenin = no Stalin, no Hitler, no Mao.
