Some good news out of the Brexit mess: Larry the Cat will retain his post as Chief Mouser at 10 Downing Street.

A government spokesperson told the BBC that, in fact, ā€œItā€™s a civil servantā€™s cat and does not belong to the Camerons - he will be staying.ā€ And Cabinet Office spokesman Benjamin Oliver told NBC News that, ā€œLarry is staying. Heā€™s very much the Downing Street cat, not the Cameronsā€™ personal cat,ā€ and, ā€œHe is a Downing Street legend.ā€

This explains why he looked so sleepily unconcerned as Theresa May and other Conservatives arrived for David Cameronā€™s final cabinet meeting. Add Larry to the long list of those who wonā€™t miss that guy.
