Londoners take out a ‘wooferendum march’

Hundreds of dogs and their owners rallied to seek a new people’s vote on Brexit
With tails wagging and raucous barking, hundreds of dogs and their owners rallied in London on Sunday to howl for a new people’s vote on Brexit, in what organisers dubbed a “wooferendum march”. The gathering drew EU-flag waving politicians, actors and activists — all accompanied by their four-legged friends and united in their opposition to Britain’s departure from the EU. “In a campaign, use whatever you can that helps,” Alastair Campbell, a former Labour government spokesman, said alongside his five-month-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Skye. “Today’s showing that this country just isn’t uniting around any vision for Brexit and it’s one way of fighting,” he said. The dog parade — which attracted everything from Corgies and beagles to huskies and a giant Leonberger — took place two weeks before a larger pro-referendum rally, set to be attended mostly by humans, planned for October 20.
