Hulk protester at Supreme Court ahead of Boris Johnson prorogation challenge

Viral News | Published:

The court in London is to hear appeals over Boris Johnson’s suspension of Parliament.

A protester dressed as the Incredible Hulk has been “arrested” by another in a Robocop costume outside the Supreme Court, as judges began hearing appeals over Boris Johnson’s suspension of Parliament.

In front of signs protesting against the proroguing of Parliament in London, a Robocop impersonator was pictured placing handcuffs on the phoney Hulk – who was wearing a distinctive blond wig – in an apparent reference to Mr Johnson’s recent superhero metaphor.

The comparison prompted a response from Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo, who tweeted: “Boris Johnson forgets that the Hulk only fights for the good of the whole. Mad and strong can also be dense and destructive.

“The Hulk works best when he is in unison with a team, and is a disaster when he is alone. Plus…he’s always got Dr. Banner with science and reason.”

Around 100 people attempting to get into court to watch the proceedings were also waiting outside.

Mr Johnson also suffered what some papers described as a “humiliation” when Luxembourg’s PM Xavier Bettel continued despite Mr Johnson pulling out of a speech due to the noise of protesters.

The Supreme Court will hear appeals from two separate challenges brought in England and Scotland to the prorogation of Parliament over three days, starting on Tuesday.
