Catholic " left Footers " On Downton Abbey TV Series - Catholic and Protestant Shovels



If you managed to watch the series Downton Abbey this past week the Catholic / Protestant tensions were on full display surrounding the issue of the Baptism of the infant of Tom Branson and the late Lady Sybil Branson (née Crawley) .

There was an anti Catholic slur used  that I was not unfamilar with that was introduced . That is
" left footer ". It appears I was not the only one that was unfamilar with that term and it's origins.

First Thoughts explains it at  Why Are Catholics Called “Left-Footers”?
