18 UK Politicians and their Canine Lookalikes
These dogs could replace Britain’s politicians without anybody noticing and may even prove more effective in resolving Brexit.
Researchers from online retailer PurePetFood.com have revealed 18 breeds of dog that look almost exactly like the UK’s leading political figures.
With Boris Johnson struggling to keep the Conservative Party on a tight leash and Jeremy Corbyn wagging his tail between different Labour Party policies, Brits’ favourite four-legged friends could be well placed to fetch votes at the next election.
From Sajid Javid the Pug, Dominic Raab the Pitbull and Priti Patel the Doberman, to Dianne Abbott the Sussex Spaniel, Emily Thornberry the Border Terrier and John McDonnell the Labrador, the front benches in the House of Commons wouldn’t look much different if the humans were replaced by canines and behaviour might even improve.
Other parties are also easily replaceable, including a Chihuahua and an Icelandic Sheepdog ready to represent Caroline Lucas of the Green Party and Arlene Foster of the DUP respectively, and a Pumi Dog set to sit in the Speaker’s chair.
A spokesperson for PurePetFood.com said: “Across the party divides, there’s probably a broad agreement that the current parliament perhaps isn’t the most productive one the UK has even been blessed with.
“The real politicians don’t seem to be getting anywhere at the moment, so to make some real progress on the issues that matter most to voters, we think it’s time to give dogs a go.
“Fortunately, it’s easy to find doggy lookalikes for Britain’s leading political figures, so we don’t think her majesty would even notice if her government and opposition were to be replaced by some of our four-legged friends.”
