Telegraph Cartoon, 5th November 2016

On 3rd November, The High Court ruled that Article 50 could not be triggered without government approval. This gave renewed hope to those wishing for Britain to avoid leaving the EU and prompted others to suggest a conspiracy between High Court judges and other political characters who wanted to prevent Brexit from happening. The cartoon is based on Crispijn van de Passe's 1605 etching of the gunpowder plot conspirators.
