    “So, if you want the Jedward hair like mine, steep this little thing in boiling water then drink it. And give Cammy a blast as well.”

    “Did you get that from a Drogheda healer?”

    ” Glad to be talking to a fellow musician. Did you hear that my debut single entered the itunes chart at number 116″

  • “God, I could do with a cuppa …”

    Nick – ‘Its the difficult follow-up single I’m worried about Bono. George Osborne suggested I record Piaf’s ‘je ne regrette rien’. I think he was trying to be funny, but then he is always a great fan of political U turns’.

  • Ed Shepherd 15th Oct '12 - 9:52pm

    Bono: “And this casket contains a true piece of the original holy cross on which our Lord was crucified. Wise men say it has the power to heal the sick, to give sight to the blind, to bring happiness to the broken hearted and to bring the dead back to living form. Some say it can even give a person the power to see the infinite mysteries of the cosmos and to truly know the mind of God as one becomes a Star-Child”
    Nick Clegg: “Does it have the power to make me popular again?”
    Bono: “Now you’re being ridiculous.”
