GUY FAWKES CLUBS: UKIP Founder Is Fed Up With Parliament

Alan Sked, the founder of the Anti-Federalist League, the organisation that became the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), has had enough of the Brexit parliamentary deadlock.

In a tweet, the Emeritus Professor suggested that people should form “Guy Fawkes clubs” in order to “show parliament our contempt for it.

I think it’s time to establish Guy Fawkes clubs around the country to show Parliament our contempt for it.

Sked referenced Guido Fawkes, who plotted to blow up Westminster Palace during the state opening of Parliament, while King James I and his chief ministers met within. Fawkes intended the act to be a reprisal for the oppression of Roman Catholics.

Fawkes became a pop culture icon through the 1980’s graphic novel series V for Vendetta by Northamptonshire writer Alan Moore. The graphic novel received a 2006 film adaptation directed by James McTeigue starring Hugo Weaving as protagonist V.

V is a vigilante fighting against an oppressive establishment who models himself on the figure of Guy Fawkes.

It is unclear what exactly Professor Sked has in mind, but if Brexit is not achieved by October 31, then this year’s November 5 could provide a symbolic opportunity for Brexiteers to demonstrate their displeasure with Parliament.
