    Whilst i despise x-factor and it's inbred televisual relations, what does this girl's being a psycho bitch have to do with her singing ability?

    The yoof of today!

    I despair for them, I mean how thick can they be!?!?! In my day, when we did stuff that could land us in trouble with Those That Must Be Obeyed, the first thing we did was make sure we removed all evidence and avoided witnesses. What kind of imbecile actually gets their dodgy mates to video them in the act? The Bash Street Kids must be spinning in their graves.

    I'll have a fleece, please, I'm out on the town tonight and it's a bit parky round here.

    How lovely is that? Ah putting little girls on the telly and pretending they have talent is really a joke isn't it? Like most of today's youth it would appear she is a mindless idiot, oh what a surprise that is really. Hah not at all. Good hopefully this can aid to the hopeful pulling of the X Factor from our screens' for good, soon.

    As for what said chav girl does to the people around her, I don't really care to be honest. She is an idiot but aren't most kids' these days?

    She's supposed to be a role model, what does being a murderer or peadophile have to do with singing ability

    BTW, Bullies are dicks and if she did anything like that to a daughter of mine (i don't have any kids) I'd kill her.

    they are going too slowly! Maybe we should think of a way to get rid of at least 10 at once.

    wise up...

    at last, some truth.

    ""As a family we are heartbroken and are very disappointed with Emily's behaviour,"

    reads..."oh shite, she's been found out as the bullying piece of crap she is"

    ye reap what ye sow....

    Being a murderer didn't do Leadbelly's career any harm.

    I've got to agree with Declan, although I'm sure that if we got rid of X Factor they'd only come up with an even worse, just when you thought it was safe to turn on the telly, Son of X Factor.

    Bollocks he did!

    Leadbelly had no more talent that 50cent - all it takes is a marketing machine and gulible idiots who buy their brand of nasty shit.

    OK so the "yoof" of today arent afraid of being busted by the cops.

    But this lady has apparrently gone on a very violent anti-social spree, and now its caught up with her in other ways.

    This should be publicised as far and wide as possible in the press, as it gives the "yoof" of today a reason to be afraid of their actions - get a shot at being famous and your past WILL come back and haunt you.

    Withdrawn?

    Is that it? She withdrew from the X Factor? Shouldn't the police be involved? And her mum has a man's name, albeit a slightly queer mans name!

    reality tv is for morons

    turn the fucking tv off, read a book perhaps, stop blaming schools for not educating your yowling offspring and get with the program.

    "BTW, Bullies are dicks and if she did anything like that to a daughter of mine (i don't have any kids) I'd kill her."

    Nothing says "classy" more than "I'd murder a 15-year-old girl for an act of minor violence".

    But then, why buy a ceremonial katana off eBay if you're not going to use it?

    stop blaming schools for not educating your yowling offspring

    eh? so what are schools for during those 12 years that they have the kids for.

    Muppet, by your lights children of "disadvantaged" or stupid people are condemned to the lives and horizons of their parents.

    Britishness

    I don't know whether SpitefulGOD is British, but I'm guessing s/he is since s/he did put an 'a' in 'paedophile'; albeit in the wrong place.

    << if she did anything like that to a daughter of mine (i don't have any kids) I'd kill her. >>

    The above bit of macho chest-pounding is a shining (?) example of one of the biggest problems in British society today: the increasingly widespread inability of British people to react proportionately. Whatever our various imperialistic wrongs, Britain was once a byword for dignity, restraint and stoicism. Now, we're a nation obsessed with emotion: the most unreasonable attitudes, actions and reactions can be legitimised by appeal to our 'feelings'. We take pride in our anger, we nurture our grievances, and we use a self-righteous sense of injury and victimhood to justify excessive and unreasonable knee-jerk responses to anything we perceive as infringing on our 'rights'.

    And in a society that so freely endorses such selfish behaviour, we wonder why our children are beating each other senseless and videoing it for the amusement of their friends.
