I preety much wrote this entire article, and I'm fairly sure that I didn't include anything from the Nuttall Encyclopaedia. MC 23:04(GMT), 6th September 2007. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.198.233.210 (talk)

Re the first sentence: Wentworth's Thorough policy actually applied to Ireland, where he was the Lord Deputy, and not to England; that was more Laud's territory. He was certainly in favour of absolute monarchy in England, but he was more concerned with his Irish duties and with using the policy to establish centralised rule (reinforcing the monarchy's authority), root out corruption and personal interests, and weaken the power (and wealth) of the Catholics. In the absence of any comment/disagreement, I'll update the article shortly to reflect this. Wrightbyname (talk) 17:56, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
