The Turner enquiry into the Government's handling of the Homes for Food scandal has been ended by a badger's pride.
The conceited animal's antics halted proceedings at the Cherry Gate hearing centre in London's Pomp Square.
Evidence was being given by former minister Harris Sars when it all happened.
Lord Turner turned to his briefcase which he stuffed with papers, closed, locked, picked up and left the building with.
Outside there was turmoil which was soothed by police watchdogs.
The badger was executed.
The RSPCA's Mary condemned the killing but said she understood.
A new enquiry is unlikely.
The incident recalls last year's events when effectively exactly the same thing happened.
Over 500 badgers live in London, although there is one less tonight.
