I was hoping it would sound like a panto style British jape, which might generate more serious debate as well.

I have received many messages of support from well-known musicians with whom I have worked in the past, who have contacted me privately, but who do not wish to express their support publicly. Everyone is afraid to stand up to people like Cowell. I don’t personally hate him; I don’t like what he represents.
