Who Killed Cherie Blair's Pussy?

Traumatic news in this morning's newspapers. Apparently Humphrey, the Downing Street cat has died at the ripe old age of 19. Older readers will recall that Cherie did her best to banish Humphrey from Downing Street as soon as she moved in. I've tried to find a copy of the picture of her holding Humphrey who she described as 'flea ridden' and 'smelly', but I've failed miserably. In the end Humphrey was rehoused with a Downing Street civil servant and had a very happy retirement. Contrary to popular rumour, Cherie didn't take out a contract on the ageing pussy - he died of natural causes. At least, that's the story being put out by Downing Street. So it must be true then.

Needing a diversion they resurrect Humphrey so as to kill him off. The timing is suspect but whats new!

You will find a picture on page 17 of the Times, Iain....

I wonder whether the death of a creature purported to have 9 lives is an omen pointing to the end of Teflon Tony?

I never liked Cherie Blair.

Every time I see her face I feel sorry for Tony Blair.

Sorry for Tony Blair for Heavens sake!

Never trust anyone who has a problem with cats I say, and judging by the behaviour of Mrs Blair thats a fair view.

If she described the cat as smelly, it does make you wonder what she thinks of Mr Prescott...
