We can make political decisions based on putting issue paperwork under one of two plates of food, and we see which one he goes to first

This method of decision making is hardly worse than letting Barry from South Shields vote us out of the EU because he 'doesn't want the Muslims coming here'.

Plus, only gardeners & sociopaths hate cats. I think he stands a better chance than any politician of getting us a good trade deal with the EU.

This is the most sensible suggestion I've seenwink

Isn't there somewhere in America that has a cat for a mayor? I'd vote for the cat over all most humans.

Come to think of it, doesn't George Osborne have a cat too? Let her run the economy in the same way.

"only gardeners & sociopaths hate cats"

Please can I quote you on this (I may make it into a fridge magnet).

Ive meet larry and can tell you he was stand offish with us and just put his tail in the air and disappeared to number 11. (Mind you 15 people did try and stroke him at once). Did feel i wasnt worthy of being in his company. Mind you he is cute so could be a sensible suggestion op. Loved his water bowl (blue with the houses of parliament sign on). inside number 10 though. Larry for pm!

Thank god the sensible political conversations are returning to mnet.

I'm not sure Larry would be up for special relationships though?

Honey...depends if its a mouse, cat or dog in the white house....

What will happen to Larry when the Camerons leave? Will they abandon him or take him with them? I get the feeling that they aren't really cat people.

Foxes -

Go for it. Make a batch & sell them.

Please send the VAT to HMRC tho' - I think the country may need all the revenue it can lay its hands on.

Yyy! grin

The best idea I have heard since the result. Larry, I presume, has the usual catlike claws necessary for intimidation as well as the purring to gain favours.

There's also Palmerston, the Foreign Office cat.

Halfway to a Cabinet already.

Shall I start a petition? grin

Why not The Duchy. Larry for PM so we can put him on the table in Brussels.

How disgustingly mousist of you. Everyone knows mice are horribly under represented in politics and you are just marginalizing them more.
