"Andrew Withers ate my hamster"

Independent politician Andrew Withers is engulfed in an internet storm, following damaging allegations that he's actually a member of a fringe political party, and that, in the midst of a red wine-fuelled binge, he swallowed his host's beloved pet rodent.

Wiping tears from her eyes, Anna explains: "Poor little Elpuck. I still clean out his cage every week, although he's never coming back. Andrew promised to replace him 'by next Tuesday', but that was some time ago."

Mr Withers has dismissed the story as nonsense, stating: "Euh, moi, je m'en fous. Elle est folle, cette fille. Je n'ai jamais touché son rat".

Je vous en prie, as Andrew would say.

No (public) update that I'm aware of from the NCC -- do you know when the hamster eating investigation is going to be concluded?

I understand there's an internal report under debate by the NCC, so things are going on, but I don't know when the NCC will agree a position.

Thanks.

No worries. I was out drinking with some of the people from the party last night and I can't see the issue dragging on much longer.
