Latest UK Election 2024 Updates: Opinion Polls Point to Labour Win

The British election has gone to hell.

If you were watching the news coverage of the UK election, you would think that dogs would go to the polls. But in fact, that was the case.

It seemed like every news site had a dog show outside the polls. Friendly dogs patiently waiting for their owners to do their civic duty while the news industry fulfilled its obligation to protect the sanctity of elections.

The UK has restrictions on what can be published on election days before polls close to avoid influencing voters. Unlike the US, where there is extensive coverage and analysis, there is no such coverage in the UK.

They don’t just talk about people going to the polls, they show pictures and videos of the major candidates entering the polls. But they don’t discuss their campaign platforms.

And so puppy love.

There was Alfie, a shaggy blond in Chiswick, Arnie, a cockapoo in a rainbow tie in Liverpool, and Toby, another beagle in Norfolk. They were all on Sky News.

On the BBC, there was Lucien, a Bernese Mountain Dog, lying outside Antrobus Village Hall in Cheshire, Pippin, a red Labrador, in Edgware, London, and Maui, an Old English Sheepdog, in Wokingham.

Journalists went to great lengths to show that it wasn’t just dogs at the polls. They found at least two horses, a cat, a chicken, and a giant snake named Neptune.
