The National:

HOME-WORKING has delighted us with some incredible media and politics moments over the last few months.

From children barging in with demands for snacks, to getting to see Liz Truss’s Union flag home décor to David Mundell being “unable to connect” with the Commons during the first digital PMQs, there have been countless entertaining scenes.

This morning SNP MP John Nicolson brought us another iconic clip as his cat Rocco made an uninvited appearance at the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee.

The Ochil and South Perthshire MP was taking part in the meeting, which had heard from the chief executive and director of policy of ITV as part of discussions on the future of public service broadcasting.

Clearly Rocco was particularly interested in what was being said, as he got very close to the computer to listen closely.

Only his ginger and white striped tail could be seen crossing the camera as Nicolson attempted to finish his sentence.

He tried to keep going: “Why .. and I apologise for my cat’s tail … why are you not doing this by default …"

But the MP had to get involved as Rocco took his time on screen. Nicolson gently moved the tail out of the lens, telling the cheeky cat: “Rocco, put your tail down.”

The committee members laughed as the cat disappeared from view.

Reporter Alain Tolhurst shared the hilarious clip on Twitter, writing: “Another classic entry for the Parliamentary cats on Zoom folder.”
