Joining a new ship?

Reported in the Daily Mail today, it's quite funny, in a way. With my former local government hat on, though, it's not at all funny. When I had to deal with them professionally, Westminster Council (who are responsible for pest control) were never very impressive, but now things have got worse. We used to say that, if you see one rat out in the open, you have a major infestation. That is undoubtedly the case here.

This is all part of the failure of invisible government. However, at least the rat was in good company ... unless, of course, it was reacting to the presence of the BBC, in which case its action was entirely logical.
