The rats infesting the Houses of Parliament have lodged an official complaint, lamenting what they describe as an “infestation of politicians.” According to sources close to the rodents, the politicians’ behaviour closely mirrors their own, leading to frustration and dissatisfaction among the furry denizens of Westminster.

“All they do is eat, squawk, fart, and sleep. The MPs aren’t much better,” remarked one particularly disgruntled rat, speaking on condition of anonymity. “We’ve been here for generations, but these politicians act like they own the place.”

The rats’ grievances range from the constant bickering and grandstanding to the seemingly insatiable appetite for taxpayer-funded perks. “They’re like us, but with fancier suits and worse hygiene,” quipped another rat, rolling his beady eyes in exasperation.

The rats’ complaints have sparked debate among Westminster insiders, with some suggesting that perhaps the rodents have a point. “It’s a bit rich coming from them, considering they’re the ones nibbling away at the foundations of democracy,” remarked one bemused MP.

However, others see the rats’ grievances as an opportunity for introspection. “If even the rats are fed up with the politicians, maybe it’s time for some serious soul-searching,” mused another observer, adjusting his monocle thoughtfully.

As the debate rages on, one thing is clear: the rats of the Houses of Parliament are not backing down. Whether their complaints will lead to meaningful change remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure – the politicians have a rat-sized problem on their hands.
