Seanad sketch: Fawlty turkeys vote for Christmas
THE Taoiseach wasn't within an ass's roar of the Seanad yesterday as the final debates on its very existence raged in the Upper House – but the ears must have been burning off the side of his head all the same.
For sensing that their own personal Christmas was well and truly nigh, a gang of turkeys turned on Axeman Enda to hurl dog's abuse at him for setting them up for the chop in the autumn referendum.
Fianna Fail's Diarmuid Wilson was irate over the single flying visit of the Taoiseach to the Seanad during the debate. "He acted like a school bully, throwing a box before running away to leave someone else deal with the ensuing chaos," he declared.
