Is the ship sinking?

Yeah, yeah, add your own joke about the rats at No 11 Downing Street. The Independent reports:

A rat-catcher has been called into Downing Street to deal with rodents that so far have been captured on television cameras, but not by any traps at No 10.

... yesterday a man in a khaki jacket and a wide-brimmed hat appeared with what for the rats was a particularly ominous Waitrose carrier bag, containing traps and poison.
Note that carrier bag. It is apparently a middle class ratcatcher. Whatever next?
