Why did he burn it? Why didn't he report it? Something not quite right about this story
It came as no surprise to me that the main character rat 'hero' of the Aardman animation film 'Flushed Away' looked and sounded just like Tony Blair (with Cherie and Harriet just behind him in this picture):
Not even Photoshopped. The common anglers' trick is to hold the 'big' fish at arms' length; it's nearer the camera and looks much bigger than it actually is, when scaled against the grinning idiot holding it up. The banana-sized fingers often give a clue if it's nnot done carefully.
To quote Father Ted; "These ones are close. those ones are farrrrrrrr away."

"Oh by the way, there more rats here if you want to come and catch them like, when d ships come in" and in a flash of inspiration, Old Geordie finally got rid of his towns rat infestation forever and was known locally as the Pied Piper of Newcastle like.
