The mouse behind the curtain

Having an mid morning meeting in one of the railway hotels in London, I look behind me at the window sill and see a mouse walk out from behind the curtain, sniff around, cool as you please, almost Beatrix Potteresque in its audacity, and then disappear.

They say that the explosion of rubbish has meant an equivalent increase in the rodent population with all the risks that brings with it. Clearly ratcachers will be in demand even in a recession, but will we be cutting back on rubbish collection because of the state of government finances?
