Lifting the lid on the secret seven

•As far as I'm concerned the 'Seven' candidates should not be allowed to dodge answering these important questions any longer:
Michael D Higgins: Shame on all those who keep harping on about your age. I just can't understand why they need to keep reminding us all about how you were born in the first half of the last century, on April 18, 1941, to be exact, six months before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, one year and six months prior to the siege of Stalingrad, and a good four years before Hitler shot himself in his Berlin bunker.
As if these things had anything to do with you. The real issue for me, however, is whether you are perchance related to the late great Irish snooker champion Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins?
