British Prime Minister Causes Outrage After Letting Dog Off Leash at Park

From a Washington Post story by Jennifer Hassan headlined “Prime minister ignites very British scandal after letting dog off leash at park”:

Who let the dog out? Apparently it was British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and this has led to a very British scandal, known to some as “dog gate.”

It began innocuously enough. A video emerged on TikTok over the weekend appearing to show the British leader strolling through one of the most popular London parks with his family and his red fox Labrador named Nova. But, as the video noted, there was something wrong with the picturesque scene. Sunak and Nova were in an area where the park rules strictly stipulate that dogs must be kept on a leash to protect the nearby swans and ducks, and Nova was roaming free.
