Lewis Prothero
Actor
Roger Allam

Lewis Prothero represents a different kind of villain in this drama. He indulgently abuses his position of public authority by using the fascist party line as justification to air his bigoted and chauvinist views in an endless stream of emotional-fueled pathological rants, burning with the fury of indignant but hypocritical self-righteousness.

He speaks secure in the knowledge that he lives in the safety of the shadows of a totalitarian system that encourages his views, but he fails to recognise the fundamental flaw that such a system is only interested in itself and ultimately will not come to his aid when he finally faces his maker.

V For Vendetta Quotes

V sums up Prothero’s character with this damning indictment:

V: There is no court in this country for men like Prothero.

Lewis Prothero Speech

Prothero rants to his TV audience:

Lewis Prothero: So I read that the former United States is so desperate for medical supplies that they have allegedly sent several containers filled with wheat and tobacco. A gesture, they said, of good will. You wanna know what I think? Well, you’re listening to my show, so I will assume you do… I think it’s high time we let the colonies know what we really think of them. I think its payback time for a little tea party they threw for us a few hundred years ago. I say we go down to those docks tonight and dump that crap where everything from the Ulcered Sphincter of Arse-erica belongs! Who’s with me? Who’s bloody with me?

[audience applauds]

Lewis Prothero: Did you like that? USA… Ulcered Sphincter of Arse-erica, I mean what else can you say? Here was a country that had everything, absolutely everything. And now, 20 years later, is what? The world’s biggest leper colony. Why? Godlessness. Let me say that again… Godlessness. It wasn’t the war they started. It wasn’t the plague they created. It was Judgement. No one escapes their past. No one escapes Judgement. You think he’s not up there? You think he’s not watching over this country? How else can you explain it? He tested us, but we came through. We did what we had to do. Islington. Enfield. I was there, I saw it all. Immigrants, Muslims, homosexuals, terrorists. Disease-ridden degenerates. They had to go. Strength through unity. Unity through faith. I’m a God-fearing Englishman and I’m goddamn proud of it!
