Sovereignty Rescued by the Angel of Democracy (after Hobbes)
This picture is based on the original frontispiece to Hobbes' LEVIATHAN of 1651. I drew it after I was asked for a definition of sovereignty by someone who voted Remain. I think that many people who voted to stay in the EU don’t really understand what sovereignty is. It’s the principle of who has ultimate control. Who has the right to decide the future of Britain? Is it the King? Is it the people? Or is it the EU?
