I didn't quite get that ^ right, not quite evoking enough of a sense of Boris the lingering virus....
Reports this morning Larry the resident cat at Number 10 Downing St, was caught making a curfew busting escape from the Prime Ministers residence under the cover of darkness late last night.
Larry's lawyer read out a statement from his client this morning "Yesterday I was condemned to the prospect of 2 weeks isolation with Boris and his incessant lingering, his unacceptable standards of cleaning and grooming, his visibly terrible social distancing practices, not to mention enjoying extended periods of play in the litter tray"
He added "That put me in an untenable position, so it was with heavy heart I made the decision to abdicate from my duties at Number 10, and attempt to flee London, retracing the steps of my great ancestor who came to London with Dick Whittington all those years ago, risking the potentially fatal but preferred embrace of the Corona virus in the process"
Security personnel thwarted the attempt at 3am this morning after a tip off. At the last moment a call from the upstairs landing raised the alarm, and in an amazing act of betrayal the tip off came from Larry's grey son, "shut that door!"
