Under-fire Liz Truss is even being snubbed by Larry the cat now.
The resident Downing Street mouser looked deeply unenthused by his new housemate while posing for pictures with the prime minister and her Danish counterpart outside Number 10 yesterday.
Ms Truss smiled as she introduced the cat to Mette Frederiksen – but Larry looked on moodily in the opposite direction.
As the PM bent down to stroke him, he brushed off her attention and sassily walked down the street.
‘He’s run away’, Ms Truss admitted, while Denmark’s PM also failed to get a stroke in despite bending down to say hello.
It is not the first time Larry has failed to greet Ms Truss, after previously being pictured looking away and sticking his bum out as she walked past.
And with the PM away from home for a few days, he tweeted from his unofficial account: ‘Liz Truss is in Birmingham for the Conservative Party Conference.
‘His day-to-day responsibilities also include contemplating a solution to the mouse occupancy of the house. Larry says this is still “in tactical planning stage”.’
