Letter: Capital cat

Sir: Now that London is to have an elected mayor, would it not be an ideal opportunity to revive the historic tradition of Dick Whittington and have a cat as well? We had Humphrey at Number 10, but his role and status were never clear. Was he a civil servant - perhaps the first ailurocrat?

Let us have a democratically elected, publicly accountable cat for the capital and for the millennium. I'm ready to kick off the "Yes" campaign with the slogan "Bring Back the Cat!"
