The mouse problem

The UK House of Lords recently debated a pest control problem in a scene straight out of a sitcom:

Palace of Westminster: Pest Control. (2010).

Lord Pilkington of Oxenford
Why should I and noble Lords trust the Executive to deal with mice when they cannot deal with the economy?
The Chairman of Committees
My Lords, I do not actually deal with the economy. I am glad to say that that would be above my pay grade, whereas trying to deal with the mice is probably just about right for me.

Although they did not decide to bring in a cat to the Palace of Westminister, there is one at 10 Downing Street.
