Too young for X-Factor

I WAS bored to tears by the front pages following the dreaded X-Factor on Sunday.

Pages and pages debating whether some pudgy-faced 16-year-old teenager is ‘too young’ to be on the show.

Yes that’s right, apparently singing the odd song in front of a few glossy C-list celebrities is too stressful for some of today’s youth, who end up in tears over the whole business.

Well boo hoo.

Time was when 16-year-old lads were shipped hundreds of miles from home handed a bayonet and told to fight for their lives.

The media ought to have more respect for what these ‘kids’ are capable of and quit mollycoddling them.

Our nanny state is going to produce a bunch of mummy’s boys if it’s not careful.
