Officer, please let this patient and rather important cat into 10 Downing Street

Officer, please let this patient and rather important cat into 10 Downing Street Reporting from the steps of 10 Downing Street, one expects to be upstaged by the sudden appearance of the UK's Prime Minister Theresa May. But one news reporter found his broadcast instead overshadowed by a very patient cat waiting to be let inside the London premises by a police officer. SEE ALSO: A firefighter rescued a cat from the Paradise fire and she won't leave him alone The moment, which the BBC called "the most British thing you'll see today," was caught on Tuesday during a news report from Sky News' political correspondent Tom Rayner, discussing Brexit and May's future outside her famous residence. On such a characteristically rainy London day, this patient feline had every right to be let in. But folks, this is not just any cat. It's Larry, the 12-year-old tabby and official chief mouser to the Cabinet Office, who has been in residence at 10 Downing Street since February 2011. Larry, chief mouser to the Cabinet Office, and patient waiter outside doors.Image: UK GOvernment/wikicommonsLarry gained notoriety for being a general badass when reports of a beef with the Foreign Office's chief mouser, Palmerston, emerged in 2016. According to the UK government's website, Larry's official duties include "greeting guests to the house, inspecting security defences, and testing antique furniture for napping quality. His day-to-day responsibilities also include contemplating a solution to the mouse occupancy of the house." So, let this rather important cat in, officer.

How Khashoggi murder, Yemen war are reawakening activism in Congress

How Khashoggi murder, Yemen war are reawakening activism in Congress Indeed the factors that some experts cite in foreseeing a resurgent bipartisan congressional role in foreign-policy oversight range widely. “On both sides of the aisle, in the House and the Senate, there are a lot of people who are uncomfortable with a tendency of this president to cozy up to dictators … and to set aside the ideals of democratic governance and human rights that have traditionally played some part in US foreign policy,” says Thomas Carothers, an expert in democratization and US foreign policy at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington.


What's giving gender parity a leg up at US corporations

What's giving gender parity a leg up at US corporations When California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill this fall requiring publicly-owned companies to have female representation on their boards, he also wrote a letter. The letter was copied to the US Senate Judiciary Committee and dated Sept. 30 – just a few days after the committee advanced the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court despite allegations of sexual assault. Written by Democratic state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, the new law makes California the first state in the nation to mandate a female quota on corporate boards and underscores a global movement toward bringing more women into corner offices.

Russian candidate for Interpol presidency defeated after intense lobbying from Western allies

Russian candidate for Interpol presidency defeated after intense lobbying from Western allies Interpol announced Wednesday that Kim Jong-yang of South Korea had been chosen as its new president, beating a Russian official whose candidacy had unnerved Western nations. The US-backed Kim, acting president of the global police body, was picked at a meeting of delegates from member nations in Dubai to replace Meng Hongwei, who went missing in his native China in September. Beijing later said Meng resigned after being charged with accepting bribes. There had been growing calls within Western nations for Interpol to reject Russian candidate Alexander Prokopchuk - a Russian interior ministry official and current Interpol vice president - over fears Moscow could abuse the role to target political opponents. On Tuesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo threw his weight behind Kim, who will serve out Meng's term until 2020. "We encourage all nations and organisations that are part of Interpol and that respect the rule of law to choose a leader with integrity. We believe Mr. Kim will be just that," Pompeo told reporters. Foreign Office minister Harriett Baldwin told Parliament on Tuesday that the Government would support Kim's bid. Critics have raised concerns over Russia's previous applications for Interpol "Red Notices", or international arrest warrants, to target those who have fallen foul of the Kremlin. Interpol's president chairs its General Assembly while day-to-day operations are handled by the organisation's Secretary general Juergen Stock. In an open letter this week, a bipartisan group of US senators said choosing Prokopchuk would be like "putting a fox in charge of a henhouse". "Russia routinely abuses Interpol for the purpose of settling scores and harassing political opponents, dissidents and journalists," they wrote. The controversy also comes amid security concerns over the Salisbury nerve agent poisonings and Russia's subsequent attempt to hack the network of the global chemical weapons watchdog. Ukraine, deeply at odds with Moscow over its annexation of Crimea and support for separatists, threatened to pull out of Interpol if Prokopchuk prevailed. Lithuania also said it would consider withdrawing from the network. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed the US senators' letter as a "vivid example" of an attempt to interfere in the vote. Moscow's interior ministry denounced a "foreign media campaign aimed at discrediting Russia's candidate".
