The most important issue in British politics is whether David Cameron loves Larry the cat, apparently


David Cameron came out swinging in his final PMQs, denying the vicious rumour that he does not love Larry the Downing Street Cat.

The departing Tory leader held up a picture of himself with the famous feline as he addressed the biggest issue facing British politics right now.

Cameron has faced a public backlash following the news that Larry will remain at Number 10 when he leaves, and there have even been reports that he refers to the cat as "it".

But he sought to calm public fears by saying loud and proud in front of Parliament: "I love Larry."

While Larry himself seemed satisfied, the public may not have been 100% convinced.

Meanwhile, Larry has had a busy morning.

While we can all agree that Larry is adorable, his future remains unclear.

The talk is that incoming PM Theresa May might be allergic.

If it's true, maybe Dave can take it with him after all.
