Mr Johnson said: “The wisdom of animals is severely underrated and I am determined not to make the same mistakes as my predecessors who relied on humans.”
A special area inside No. 10 has been created to house the government’s latest recruits.
One No. 10 insider said: “The noise is horrific, especially at feeding time but at least it drowns out the sound of ‘him’ shouting.
“And don’t get me started on the smell. Even Rees-Mogg‘s cologne can’t cover it up.”
Mr Johnson said: “They all have their areas of expertise.
“The pigs are a source of particularly wise advice. Just the other day they trotted away then came back and said ‘Stick to your guns, Boris, and you’ll bring home the bacon’.”
“The donkeys are stubborn like the EU and suggest I ignore their braying and use a carrot and stick approach to make them shift their position.
“The cows help with farmers by steering a course through our steamy agricultural policy.
“The bats are developing new sonar systems for the air force to help them fly under the radar.
“Oddly, I haven’t seen the No. 10 cat recently. But no miss. I’ve no intention of pussy-footing around any issue.
“Possibly the least useful, I have to say, are the chickens which run around as if they were headless – which, of course, they’re not. But I keep them around because they remind me so much of Labour.”
Mr Johnson added: “I get more sense out of the animals than I do out of the cabinet. I know I picked the cabinet but sometimes you have to make the best of a bad job,”
