I missed that, Tony. Thanks. So just went to look up some Dutch news about this. Amazing. They're being trained to sniff explosives, drugs, cadaver, you name it. They're [they say] even more easy to train than dogs [and cheaper to maintain]. On the minus side, they don't live as long as dogs do.

I used to have rats and desert rats when I was a student. Very good pets, extremely smart and sweet. One big male sadly was an alcoholic. You had to put something on your beer glass otherwise he would be in it, happy and hickuping.

So are some of these going to be druggies? Junkies looking for the next fix? I'm wondering if it's going to be enough to put a suspect in a cell with Poirot, Holmes, Spillane and co.

Canny Dutch, saves on dog food as well.

I wonder what Mike O'Sullivan thinks of Mrs' crude language. She has admitted to using it and yet Mr. A. did not ever use foul language.

If Mr. A. were to sue all the people who have insulted and libelled him, he could be a very rich man indeed.

Would this change the standing expression "I smell a rat" to "I have a rat that smells"?

Or, if the rat thought there was something dodgy going on would the rat be able to smell it?

If the rat fell down a sewer, would all the other rats say 'you dirty rat'?

If KM were to be questioned by inspector rat, would she get rattled?

Some pro must have called him that. In interviews he' always comes across with considered answers, calm and balanced. Often sidestepping answers that could be hurtful to Kate. I think he pities her.

You might very well be right. But IMO there's a limit to pity. And, also IMO, she overstepped that [again] when contesting the court case being in closed chambers.
