Gladstone the Treasury cat is all of us this World Gin Day

Get the bottle out.

After all the political upset brought about by yesterday’s General Election outcome, many of us could do with a drink.

And it seems Gladstone, the Treasury cat, feels that pain.

An unofficial Twitter account for the government department’s chief mouser tweeted a picture of a fellow moggie cuddling up to a bottle of gin in a sorry celebration of World Gin Day.

The caption read: “Today of all days this is probably much needed for many of you.”

@TreasuryMog also provided a prediction for what the future may hold for Theresa May.

Featuring an unhappy looking cat sat outside a polling station, Gladstone tweeted: “I have a feeling we’ll all be back here soon and with the same expression as this cat.”

Pass us the gin.
