Jedward at least make some sense

Next weekend, the electorate will be asked whether the minimum age you need to be to run for president should be lowered from 35 to 21. This may seem dangerous, particularly when you consider that Jedward have already revealed their policies.

"I'd want to get stuff done," said John or Edward. "I'd full-on be out there and make all the decisions. I wouldn't just be signing off on stuff."

This may sound like nonsense, but consider a proclamation of our incumbent president, when speaking in the US last year: "The current distribution of live chances has to be redressed, we cannot be consumed in our own consumption."

If you ask me, Jedward make at least as much sense.
