9 reasons why cats could rule Great Britain better than politicians

Well, specifically why Larry the Downing Street Cat could…

2. Patriotism comes easy

7. He’s not to be f**ked with

He’s not going to look silly during important-but-happy events. One can celebrate in a dignified manner.

9. Simply Churchill-ian
