Simon Cowell plans ‘political X Factor’ | The Guardian

Simon Cowell, the millionaire mastermind behind The X Factor, is thinking of producing a ‘political X Factor’, in which hot topics are debated and voted on by the British public.

Speaking to BBC Newsnight, he said he has an idea that the public would debate key issues like the British troop presence in Afghanistan and knife crime. He suggested a red phone might be on the stage, allowing No 10 to call in to explain its position.

OK, I far as I see it, this program already exists, albeit with a slightly different format. It’s called Question Time, it’s brilliant, and it’s been there for years and years. But, an extra offering wouldn’t hurt. Would it?
