Larry or Palmerston? Or, will Gladstone make his move from Exchequer and displace both?
Larry, left....Palmerston, right.
Evidently, Larry is the current tenant at Number 10 Downing Street and Palmerston is from across the street in the Foreign Office. There have been ongoing street brawls, and Palmerston actually staged an incursion in to Number 10 and had to be put out by security. Larry is worse for wear and has had to seek veterinary care for wounds.
Every pic I've seen of their confrontations, it's either been a stand-off, or Larry is getting the worst of it. That Palmerston is an astute brawler. And buff, too.
Larry reminds me of Hobbes. Although Palmerston and Murray are both tuxedos, Murray is no Palmerston. Murray is a cream puff. A very shy cream puff. Every pic I've seen of the two of them in combat, Palmerston has Larry vastly outnumbered in extended claws...usually three to one. My money is on Palmerston.
