Clucking Chicken Steals Limelight During Scottish MP's Speech

Laughter ensued in the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh after a chicken unleashed a running commentary of clucks during an MP’s speech on September 1.

This footage shows Scottish Conservative MP Douglas Ross speaking via video link from his home in Moray following First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement that the Scottish Government planned to introduce COVID-19 vaccine passports for entry to nightclubs and large events in Scotland.

As Ross spoke, a series of warbling clucks could be heard in the background.
