There is a blog by Adam Curtis which contains an interesting collection of material related to Stephen Knight, culminating in ‘From Hell’.

Although it professes to be about 3 men (the other two being George Davis and Lord Lampton) Stephen Knight is the common thread.

Hello, NickB,

Very interesting blog you linked to above. I was amused to find most of the video clips covered by a black bar and the message, "This content doesn't seem to be working at present, please try again later." Some government conspiracy? Maybe, but more likely because I'm in the U.S.

Moore also wrote the graphic novel "V", which is very much about distrust of authority. American protesters affiliated with the Wall Street protests have adapted the blank white mask worn by the hero of "V", though I've also seen it at a comic book convention.

The mask is actually a traditional "Guy Fawkes" mask.
"Remember, remember, the fifth of November,
Gun powder, treason and plot."

Which is why Moore used it and, of course, why parliament
was targeted.

Thanks for the blog link, NickB. Since Bruce Robinson has just channelled Knight, it's a quite timely piece of paranoia.
