A lot of people seem to be upset by the sight of a middle-aged demagogue making a prick of himself doing cat imitations. From a purely political point of view I fail to see the problem. Anything that degrades and humiliates such people has to be a positive, if only to highlight how despicable they are for the benefit of the slower-witted members of the electorate. Like almost everyone in Bethnal Green and Bow, to pluck an example out of thin air entirely at random. After all, would the Wehrmacht have leapt to reoccupy the Rhineland if they'd just seen newsreels of Hitler fetching a stick for Marlene Dietrich? I think we all know the answer.
On the other hand, no-one seems to have considered how the feline community might view the matter. I can't imagine they're happy about it. Remember when Prince Harry dressed up as a member of the Afrika Korps for a party? Their veterans' association was seriously pissed off about that. According to their official spokesfuhrer, elderly Nazi stormtroopers were upset to be associated with anything as indefensible as a hereditary monarchy. Same deal with the cats. They're Nature's nobility - arrogant, sadistic, and not as smart as they think they are - and of course they have claws. If I were George I wouldn't go down too many dark alleys for a while.
A cat yesterday. Not amused.
