MAN’S best friend be­lieves hu­mans are get­ting a wruff deal over Brexit and plan to stage a Woofer­en­dum in Oc­to­ber – a po­lit­i­cal act by the dogs, for the peo­ple.

Ca­nines from across Bri­tain are com­ing to­gether to march on Par­lia­ment and to de­liver a pe­ti­tion to Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May in Down­ing Street de­mand­ing a Peo­ple’s Vote on the fi­nal deal with the Euro­pean Union.

The pooches say many of their two­legged friends are wor­ried Brexit is bark­ing mad and so are ready to let their paws pound the pave­ments i8n cen­tral Lon­don on Sun­day Oc­to­ber 7 for the Woofer­en­dum.

They be­lieve it is time to hound hard­line Brex­i­teers try­ing to muz­zle any­one who thinks leav­ing the EU is a bad idea.

And as the great writer Mark Twain ob­served: “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”

In an in­creas­ingly gloomy rhetoric on all sides about the long­last­ing ef­fects of Brexit, the or­gan­is­ers of Wooferen­ dum de­serve credit for bring­ing a sense of hu­mour back to the de­bate.

The pro­mo­tional video is a hoot and fea­tures a suc­ces­sion of dogs great and small in a plac­ard wield­ing film in the same vein as Bob Dy­lan’s black and white six­ties clas­sic for Sub­ter­ranean Home­sick Blues; just visit woofer­en­dum.org and meet the stars.

An­i­mal lovers on both sides of the de­bate will en­joy view­ing the dogs busy re­cruit­ing sup­port for the “big­gest bark in his­tory”...af­ter all our four­legged chums risk los­ing their pet pass­ports and free move­ment across the Chan­nel.
