Brexit protesters in London took aim at Boris Johnson’s “puppet master” Dominic Cummings on a bumper day for British politics.

An effigy brought by People’s Vote demonstrators depicted Cummings as a demonic figure holding a cartoon model of the Prime Minister.

The model of the former Vote Leave campaign chief had the words “Demonic Cummings” written on his head and “Master of Muppets” emblazoned below.

It also featured a Union Jack in the guise of a moustache – similar to that of Adolf Hitler’s – as well as a Nazi-style red armband reading “Get Brexit Done”.

The effigy was pictured in the capital as thousands of people gathered to call for a vote on Johnson’s Brexit deal.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
