In the stuff of sketch-writers dreams, the Downing Street rats were blighting television news coverage and looked like something out of House of Cards. And what better a way to distract from all those nasty cuts. Look, look, something cute.
Enter stage left Larry, the Cameron’s new kitty, who is arriving from Battersea today. The race has begun for the first picture, so don’t expect any other political news today.
UPDATE: Downing Street saucers have confirmed there will be a photo op at 1pm.
