    The parrot may not be dead (although it looks stuffed to me), but is the party suffering from bird flu?

  • It resembles the patients in “Critical” (Sky 1), being brought into Trauma. Trouble is the voters do not seem so motivated towards reviving it as the Trauma team do.
    PS Can we not get someone younger that PD?

  • Not dead, but stuffed. Well, that’s a slight improvement.

  • In te original sketch the parrot was dead and no matter what alternative description were offered by Michael Pslin the parrot was dead! Not a good image from Paddy.
