Simon Cowell, is yet another starry-eyed clot who backs the Conservatives and their radical cuts in public spending. He’s an oaf with his head in the clouds, who should be encouraging youngsters to follow one of the three learned professions or further education. Instead, he only wants to persuade the young, uneducated, star-truck youngsters to be famous by singing tacky ditties on a one night stand in a talent contest, or, if they’re no better than average, without any formal music training, then they’re urged to sing trashy commercial pop tunes or look for a record deal. Incidentally, virtually all of the artists he signed for his record label, had no recognised, formal, music training, such as a degree in music. In fact he has no formal music qualifications either, and churning out cheap, commercial ditties at his record companies is all he ever really did. How could anyone have asked him or Piers Morgan to competently judge at talent contests, when they haven’t really got a clue, because they don’t know anything about sophisticated, musical compositions.

Simon Cowell claims to be passionate about this country and yet seems to have his priorities mixed-up, if he feels that family values and other social problems are priority issues for the Government. Simon Cowell is an uneducated man who, after meeting David Cameron twice, believes that Mr Cameron is an honest man of substance who can stomach the difficult times ahead. Well, we all know what kind of substance Mr Cameron has had, don’t we now.

The elderly, the sick and disabled, and people living below the national poverty line will feel the brunt of cuts in public spending if the UK Conservatives win the election. Only the financially well-endowed middle and upper classes, journalists, media reporters, newsreaders, celebrities, multimillionaires, wealthy politicians and financially well endowed television personnel will prosper under a Conservative Government, where the rich get richer and the poor become even poorer.

I want a fair and balanced political party to run this country, and only the Labour party could fit the bill. The most sensible option is for everyone to vote for the Labour party, the most decent, upstanding, respectable, and honest political party that this country has to date been privileged to have had in power.

I'm not a member of any political party, nor am I a well-versed politician, and in the light of the highly successful Conservative-Liberal coalition, I think I'm allowed to veer to the centre right as I now know more about politics.

Here we are again, and Gordon Brown’s at it again isn’t he, recommending people like Simon Cowell for the Queen’s honours list.

What about the Doctors and nurses who worked so hard for the NHS, you won’t find many of them getting a mention on the honours list. Gordon

Brown also praised Susan Boyle, a former Britain’s Got Talent contestant, while she was in the Priory clinic recovering from a nervous breakdown. The woman was on the dole (claiming long-term unemployment benefits) because she didn’t want to work, and yet in my opinion she could so easily have found a position of employment. If she was capable of attending talent contests, performing on stage and learning complicated songs for both public performances and recording studios, why then was she unable to work? One newspaper article mentioned that she was mentally retarded, but I find it so hard to believe that she was incapable of finding work because of her disability.

Millions of youngsters were conned into buying cheap and tacky ditties produced by Simon Cowell’s record company, which is how millions of pounds were generated for the music industry and Great Britain’s economy. And for every tacky record company there are hundreds of other companies that generate millions of pounds for this country. Do they all get a mention on the Queen’s honours list!

I’m looking forward to gaining university qualifications, and qualifications beyond postgraduate status, titles I will have worked hard for, and qualifications which will be an asset to companies all over the world

Okay everyone, you know how to get a mention on the Queen's birthday honour's list, just support a few charities for a while and generate loads of dosh for the British economy, and if you're lucky Gordon Brown may recommend you for a title.

Now's your chance everyone to gain a title without really working that hard for it. Go on George Michael! Now there's a man who supports more than a handful of charities.

My commiserations go to all the poor employees at the establishments supported by all of Simon Cowell's dirty cash. Even if they worked as care assistants, nurses or doctors for the next 40 years or more, they still wouldn't get an honour. Never mind eh.

Thank goodness, Knighthoods and other titles aren't passed on to their children.
