Larry the Downing Street cat has been appointed interim Prime Minister until the Conservatives can elect a new party leader.
The statesmanlike moggy will run the country from Downing Street after Boris Johnson dramatically quit as Tory leader this morning.
Larry will lead his first cabinet meeting later today and expects an audience with the Queen, so long as her Corgis are out of the way.
“Things are going to be shaken up around here,” Larry told reporters outside Number 10.
“There will be no parties or sex-pest scandals. To be honest, everyone around here acts in an incoherent fashion all the time, so it’s hard to tell if they had been on a jolly-up or not.
“But what I will say is there will be no such outrageous behaviour on my watch.”
Downing Street insider Lorraine Fisher, 34, said Larry has been acting like he owns the place for years, so people should not be surprised at him ruling the country with an iron paw.
