Pope Benedict XVI is to resign today in protest at the Government’s Croke Park II proposals.
Before resigning the pontiff advocated rejection of the proposals on public pay.
“How did Labour come to this?” the Pope asked as he prepared to vacate office. “Someone should give that Howlin fella a slap.”
“Now leave me alone,” he added. “I’ve a box set of Father Ted to watch. It’s the anniversary of Dermot Morgan’s death you know.”
“It’s funny how the mind wanders.”
