Don't forget it's all soldier soldiers fault
No Robson and Jerome no Simon Cowell as he credits them from saving him from ruin

Cowell is talented
If you can get brodcasters and the public to part with millions for a Kareoke contest then you must have something about you
I don't think it's just Cameron either he seems to be able to ring Brown up at the drop off a hat and allow Brown an audience

He seems to be very supportive of the forces aswell

I wonder how many people who think he's a tosser wouldn't mind his lifestyle?
Don't get me wrong, I don't actually think he's a tosser. I think he's succesful at running the 'Mindless Sh!t Delivery System' over the airwaves. He's rich, and good on him for getting this right.

Do we get better music? I don't think so. Do we get better telly? Assuredly not.

Will that tosser Dave Cameron emulating him give us better governance? What do you reckon?

Unfortunately, the (at least) 19 million people who tuned in for the x-factor final would disagree with you.

I know where you're coming from, but Cowell is merely profiting from Labour's chav-scum electorate which already exist.

Cowell can play them, and Cameron will need to play them if he's ever to get elected.

That said, I think Cameron's comments were directed at the fact that he's a talented businessman who's advice could no doubt benefit the economy.

Nope I agree with you

T.V - shite I try not to watch any of his stuff but she enjoys it
Music I always take the opinion that he's riuined it and the only winner ever is him
If some of these singers were so good they'd do it without him

I've also stated on here Cameron will struggle fo my vote because he's not doing anything to get it
I know Brown nicks everything he says but at the minute I don't see anything from Cameron that makes me think he will be a good or strong leader
He's certanly no Thatcher and I think we are well in the cack for years to come

Trouble is I also think Brown is countiong on people like me either not voting or giving it to UKIP or someone as it's not going to the tories and thats Browns only hope of getting anything next year

Good points.

Looks like Cowell DOES plan to 'Ratnerise' British politics anyway. Seems I spoke too soon.

Cowell's plans for pre-election voting show

The big question is, is this a good thing? Will he be able to bring politics to the consciousness of the lobotomised mind, and thus turn it into must-view TV, where the difficult questions can get an airing, or will it turn into a program that brings us voting on matters like "My drake didn't have it off with no hen in THAT duck-house!"?

Will 'The Politics Factor' bring to the political debate more than 'Question Time' does, or will it simply lower the tone?

I've got frightening visions of Ant and Deck bigging up David Cameron as he comes on stage in a cloud of dry ice, open necked shirt on, suitably made up, with a face-mike and a backing group, and then delivering his solo "I'm your kind of guy". I'm thinking Britany Spears and Nicki Chapman would pop up their score cards, and then we'd all scramble to the phone to vote on him for £3.50 a pop.

I saw a bit on Newsnight last night
He was talking about some show with a hotline to Number 10
I thought he was joking - seems I was wrong

Of course it'll be text or phone £1 per mesage 88p to Cowell 10 to ITV and the rest to charity

I saw that and, although it took a few minutes to sink in, I think it might actually get people thinking and talking about political issues. Or start a war. Or simply not get watched.

Either way, it's worth a punt.

You're probably right, in which case the show is pointless. Everyone has a phone with which they can phone in and vote, but only a particularly sad minority would pay for the privilege.

A scary thought, given that if it was even half as successful as x-factor, it would carry serious weight when it came to policy decisions.

you may not care but for someone who started off in the mail room of EMI i think,althought i may not like him, he has done a bloody good job and it's the like of people like him who may end up doing a better job than politicians.

after all he has made a lot of money for being a complete and utter banker

No, he has made a lot of money by banking on the fact that a lot of people in the world were born yesterday. Additionally, their education was deficient in critical skills; not something unknown in the past decade or so across the country.

All Politicians, of any party, believe very strongly in the dictum that we, the populace, are stupid.
To be fair the large majority are, they've voted labour in 3 times.

Cameron's right. Cowell's a talented entrepreneur who, as I stated elsewhere, makes a fortune tapping the limitless supply of human brainlessness and addiction to "celebrity culture". He's a brilliant example to Tories everywhere.

I may despise everything he stands for and all the chuff he subjects us to, but the bloke's a genius.
Absolutely. A very bright chap who has made the ignorance and stupidity of a large percentage of the general population work for him - and pay him many spondulicks. Doesn't mean that he should be any kind of role model (other than for potential entrepreneurs) nor does it mean that we should be happy to see him 'honoured' in any way, particularly by being placed into one of our governing institutions. Considering the number of repulsive political placemen with nothing to contribute in the House of Lords already, he would certainly be one too many.

I'm getting a nasty suspicion that Cameron does see Cowell as a role model, for himself. He's seen the way that Blair got away with murder (allegedly), by playing to the suckers, with things like 'Blair's Babes' and all that other mindless tw@ttery that got him popular with gullible fcukwits, and he's looking at Cowell and thinking "Yeah, gorgeous, open necked shirt, casual pose, inane smile, easy-going luvvy - that's the key to success! That's what will get 5 million chavs and mongs to fist their 'X' on a bit of paper next to a picture of me.

My only hope (to be dashed) is that the Conservative Party is populated by smart cookies who, once they've used Cameron to get into power, will quietly remove his head and pop the carcass in an eco-friendly wheelie bin, and get someone smarter to make the decisions.

Cameron has done nothing but 'politics' since his PPE degree and nothing of social value before it, either. He has no grasp of the aspirations of any stratum of society other than those of the political class. He represents, to me, the enemy; a cost centre and a policeman of the limits of my freedoms. Fuck him and the rest of the porkers. Vote for your local Independent or the UKIP, who at least appear to be principled to some degree.

Cut off your nose to spite your face, you mean? Do that, and Labour get back in. The Tories at least have a track record with fixing the economy, and they're the only realistic option we have.

It might not be 'right', but that is, unfortunately, the way our electoral system works.

Indeed, vote for UKIP or independents at your peril, that way lies labour, AGAIN.
