10 Downing StreetThe humble terraced house inhabited by the Prime Minister is a key symbol of British democracy. Other countries may give their presidents grand mansions, but the only sign that this simple black door belongs to Britain's leader is the policeman standing outside, and the barriers at the end of the road. Behind the door, things are, by all accounts, considerably less humble. Grand staircases and a network of corridors join half-a-dozen structures in Downing Street to make a large complex of offices, conference rooms, and family homes for the Prime Minister, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The other permanent role in Downing Street is the post of "Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office", currently held by a black-and-white cat called Sybil, successor to the beloved Humphrey, a former stray who served under four different Prime Ministers.
