Jon Platt took his daughter to Disney World without her headteacher’s permission, and fought the dispute to the Supreme Court.
Speaking on LBC to Nigel Farage, an enraged caller argued that the decision would lead to a “revolution” as it targeted “ordinary parents”.
The caller, Adam, said that he would take his child on holiday during term time.
He said: “As long as my child, is doing good at school, is attaining the grades, doesn’t need any special help, and has general good attendance above 90 per cent, I honestly do not see the problem.
A caller stunned Nigel Farage as he claimed the Supreme Court ruling was an attack on parents
“This morning today should spark concern across everybody.
“Even if you don’t have kids because it is the state declaration, as I see it, a war on parents.”
The LBC caller continued with his furious rant as he compared the decision to one which could lead to a revolution.
He said: “They are telling us that they know better on how to bring up our children.
“It is how revolutions start as far as I am concerned.”
Farage was left stunned by the fury of the call as he joined Adam in criticising the Supreme Court for the landmark decision.

“You have got to maintain some sense of discipline within a school otherwise there might be no-one there.
“The more I thought about this and the more I realised the utter determination of the department of Education to take this all the way to the Supreme Court.
“The actually the power of John Platt’s argument that actually his daughter had a 92 per cent attendance record and actually was doing well at school, the more I came to the same point of view as you.
“We are in a world where the state starts to tell parents how they should bring kids up and right and what is wrong and that is pretty Orwellian.
