At several ‘Pee Stations’ along the protest route in London, dogs were encouraged to urinate on images of politicians like Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson. Why? Because “Brexit is barking mad”!
Around a thousand dogs and their owners marched on Britain’s parliament on Sunday demanding an end to Brexit via a second vote on the terms of the country’s exit from the European Union.
Organisers of the “Wooferendum” campaign argued that animals would suffer from leaving the EU, saying there would be a shortage of vets and a rise in pet food costs.
Political writer Alaister Campbell told Evening Standard,
“I think this is a very British, wacky, eccentric way of doing it. I think it’ll keep momentum going for the march on October 20, where I hope tens of thousands of people will come out and demand a People’s Vote.”
Britain voted by a margin of 52 to 48 per cent to leave the European Union in 2016. The country’s Prime Minister Theresa May hasn’t yet been able to break a deadlock to finalise the Brexit plan.
