Along with the international aid, Pigeon recuperation has been a surprise winner in the emergency election budget.

George Osbourne stated - "I want to build a mini Chelsea Hospital for these wonderful birds. I shedded a tear when I saw one limping into no11."

However in such 'straitened times' the move drew gasps of despair from his own party. "He may have a dukedom in Yorkshire, but he's about as Northern as John Presott is clever" - said one.

Labour meanwhile applauded the move saying they had already commissioned a unit to deal with pigeon 'emotional issues' including falcons.

Nevertheless other parties derided the decision. James Rose of the English Democrats said - "These are flying vermin - nothing like the plump wood pigeons you get in Henley. Boris Johnson should bring in west Scotland's sea eagles that can pick up two at a swoop."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
