When a party of schoolchildren visited London’s City Hall, they were startled when a mouse fell at their feet. That’s when London Assembly members asked the capital’s Mayor Sadiq Khan to do the obvious thing – get a cat.

Labour Assembly member Tom Copley asked Mr Khan: “Given the problem with mice in the building will you consider getting a cat for City Hall, preferably rehoming one from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home?”

With cats already keeping mice in check at 10 Downing Street, it’s only obvious that a cat should protect London’s City Hall from mice as well. Perhaps if England hires enough cats, they can ride the nation of unwanted pests and let the cats run the government on their own instead. After all, people love cats but they don’t share the same level of affection for politicians.
