Larry the Downing Street cat makes a killing

LONDON — Larry the Downing Street cat has inadvertently helped his master, Prime Minister David Cameron, hit back after the British leader was challenged to show whether he was “man or mouse” Tuesday.

Larry killed a mouse, a rare event in the life of a feline previously known for his laid-back approach to hunting.

The killing came hours after senior Conservative MP Tim Yeo questioned whether Cameron had the character to take the politically explosive decision to give the green light for a third runway at Heathrow airport in a column for The Daily Telegraph.

“The Prime Minister must ask himself whether he is man or mouse,” Yeo wrote.

Cameron is on holiday in Cornwall but a Downing Street spokesman told reporters: “The only dead mouse in Downing Street is the one Larry caught this morning.”

    Well now you’ve got me reading up on the history of cats living at Number 10, and a wholly pleasant subject it is. Thank you!

    I can’t even take the blame for this one. Except in that I authorised dipshit subcontractors. And then had to authorise them every time they wanted to take breath.

    I thought the cat was Jeoffry? You guys keep moving the goalposts; it’s just not cricket.
