Cat's an internet star
A NEW internet icon has emerged following Rene Kinzett's outburst last week — Derrick the cat (pictured below).
Since Councillor Kinzett declared that some Swansea councillors "know less than my cat", two pages have been set up by "Derrick the cat" on social networking site Facebook.
A group set up by a friend of the Tory councillor has 53 members. The site states: "Could Derrick have an amazing future and change the face of politics? Could Derrick save this country from economic CATastrophe? We think so and invite you to join this group to show your support.
"There is no membership fee, but Derrick would appreciate donations in lieu to the Cats Protection League."
Councillor Kinzett said: "It's amazing. Obviously one of my friends decided, in light of the publicity my comments got, to raise the humour level."
A profile page has also been set up, with 26 members signed up to be friends with the feline.
