Wednesday May 5, 2010

While we all know he is one of music's most powerful man, Simon Cowell has been sharing his political wisdom, too.

"I have always hated celebrities lecturing people on politics. So forgive me. But I am passionate about this country," the music mogul says.

"I am equally passionate about the potential of the people who live here."

While he describes Labour's Gordon Brown as a "sincere man", Simon says the Prime Minister is "tired".

Regarding Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, Simon says he "worries about a lot of his policies."

And of Tory leader David Cameron, he says: "I like him, I trust him. He has substance and the stomach to navigate us through difficult times."

"My proudest achievement has been the success of the shows and artists I have been involved with, because they were made in Britain.

"I believe everyone has the right to be heard and the right to make a better life for themselves.

"I have seen that the American Dream is a reality - and I would love to feel the British Dream is also a reality."
