"It is right that these two gifted young men should receive this accolade Gordhelpus Brown told a rapturous press conference. I alone saw the talent and the vision Jedward have shown. They are popular with young people, with families, with old people, with the gay community, with the poor, with our soldiers in Afghanistan and it is right that they should have a say in the governance of this country." A conservative spokesmen said "This government will use any cynical ploy it can to get votes in the run up to the general election. Shit did they actually get them to do it ?"
It is rumored that this move will mean that labour are likely also to receive the support of pop mogul Slyman Cowelling in what is now seen as they only thing that can stop a conservative landslide.

"We just wanna have fun and make as much money as possible" said a current member of the Lords. "By the way ... What is a Jedward ?"
