Sovereignty Rescued by the Angel of Democracy (after Hobbes)
Based on the original frontispiece to Hobbes' LEVIATHAN of 1651. I drew this after I was asked for a definition of sovereignty by someone who voted Remain. I think many people who voted to stay in the EU don’t understand what sovereignty is. It’s the principle of who has ultimate control. So who has the right to decide the future of Britain? Is it the King? Is it the people? Or is it the EU?
Note the rather obvious reference to red tape.
Spiders are another common metaphor for the EU across Europe.
